Erika has dissipated and is no longer a threat to the U.S...
From the National Hurricane Center:
Surface observations from Cuba, satellite imagery, and reports from a U.S. Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft, indicate that Erika has degenerated into a trough of low pressure, with the remnants of the center located near the north coast of eastern Cuba. All coastal watches and warnings are discontinued.
The remnants are moving toward the west-northwest near 22 mph This general motion should continue for the next 24 hours or so, with the remnants expected to move near the coast of eastern and central Cuba today and tonight and into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. Interests in the Bahamas, eastern and central Cuba, and South Florida should monitor the progress of the remnants of Erika.
The remnants of Erika are expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 3 to 6 inches - with maximum amounts of 10 inches possible - across portions of the Dominican Republic, Haiti and eastern and central Cuba through Sunday. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides. In addition, rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are expected across the Turks and Caicos Islands as well as the southeastern and central Bahamas through Sunday. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches, with locally heavier amounts, are possible across southern and central Florida beginning on Sunday.
Wind gusts to tropical storm force are expected in squalls over portions of the Turks and Caicos Islands and the southeastern Bahamas for the next several hours. These conditions are expected to spread into the central Bahamas this afternoon and tonight. Gusts to tropical storm force in squalls are also possible over eastern Cuba today. Gusty winds could occur over southern Florida beginning on Sunday.
This is the last advisory on this system by NHC unless regeneration occurs.
