Tropical Storm Alex heads toward Bermuda with high winds
The first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season is headed toward Bermuda after killing three people in Cuba and flooding roads in Florida. Alex reached tropical storm force after strengthening off Florida’s east coast early Sunday.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Alex had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph late Sunday afternoon and was centered about 395 miles west of Bermuda. It is moving to the east-northeast at 28 mph and is expected to pass near or just north of Bermuda on Monday.
Parts of South Florida experienced flooding from heavy rain over the weekend. Officials in Miami say many cars were stuck on flooded streets.
