Tropical depression forms, aims for Bahamas
Sunday - 8/24/2014, 11:52am EDT
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) -- A tropical depression formed over the Turks and Caicos Islands as it headed toward the Bahamas and dumped heavy rains on parts of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, according to the U.S. Hurricane Center.
It is the fourth depression of the Atlantic hurricane season, and the system is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm on Sunday as it passes over or near the central Bahamas. Early Sunday, the depression had sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph) and was located about 325 miles (520 kilometers) east southeast of Nassau.
A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Turks and Caicos and for the southeast and central Bahamas, with forecasters saying it could bring up to 8 inches (20 centimeters) of rain. The depression was moving northwest near 11 mph (18 kph).
The storm was upgraded to a tropical depression on Saturday afternoon, and it had previously downed several trees and power lines in Puerto Rico, leaving more than 17,000 people without power and nearly 5,600 without water.
Police said in a statement that a small bridge collapsed Saturday in the central town of Barranquitas, isolating some 25 families in the area. No one was injured.
