Tropical Storm Karen enters southeast Caribbean

Tropical Storm Karen is continuing to spread blustery winds and flooding rains around the southern Windward Islands.

Karen formed earlier Sunday and is now about 85 miles (140 kilometres) northwest of Grenada.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm had top sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) as of Sunday afternoon and was expected to approach Puerto Rico and the US and British Virgin Islands on Tuesday.

Forecasters say the storm could bring tropical storm-force winds and heavy rains and flash flooding to those islands on its approach.

Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Jerry is raising the risk of tropical storm-force winds as it moves closer to Bermuda. But forecasters say it’s still too early to determine what impacts Jerry may have on Bermuda.
