Tropical Storm Erika kills more than 20

Dominica has born the brunt of Tropical Storm Erika, which reportedly left more than 20 dead on the Caribbean island over the weekend.

Another 50 are thought to be missing among remote communities among mountainous terrain after reports that more than 13 inches of rain fell in less than a day.

 

Erika’s strong winds and violent storms also brought flooding and landslides to Haiti and hit the Dominican Republic.

 

The storm later moved north and hit the Tampa Bay area of Florida, moving up the Carolinas, weakening as it moved further up the coast.

 

It brought more than six inches of rain to Charleston yesterday.

 

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Cape Verde issued its first hurricane warning on record as Hurricane Fred approached yesterday.

 

It had weakened to a tropical storm before moving through the islands, which were lashed with heavy rain and strong winds. The storm is due to disperse over the mid-Atlantic today.
