Jeanne Heads for Bahamas; Karl on the Horizon as South Regroups
After briefly gaining hurricane strength, Tropical Storm Jeanne's wind speed slowed as it drifted West-Northwestward along the north coast of Hispaniola. Even the comparatively slow winds - around 65 mph (104 km/hr) - have been deadly, however. Two persons were reported to have died from storm-related causes in Puerto Rico and two in the Dominican Republic.
