Tropical Storm Noel Forms in Carribbean

Tropical Storm Noel formed over the weekend from an area of disturbed weather south of Hispanola.

The storm peaked with winds gusting over 50 mph late Sunday, but now are dropping back a bit as the center moves over land.

Although minimal in terms of winds, this storm is going to drop life-threatening rainfall over Haiti and the island of Hispanola.

Some places could see 10 to 20 inches of rain with isolated amounts up to 30 inches.

Due to the mountainous terrain, mudslides are likely.

I am sure Noel will make a few headlines over the next day or so.

The storm is expected to move north toward the Bahamas, but current forecasts suggest it will curve eastward away from Florida and the USA.

In some aspects it'd be nice if Noel could stay minimal but move into the southeast United States because they so desperately need the rain.
