Residents of southeastern Florida kept close watch Oct. 31 on Tropical Storm Noel as it barreled through Cuba toward the Bahamas after lashing Haiti and the Dominican Republic with rain that left as many as 60 dead. The AP said as many as 60 people have died because of the storm, 41 in the Dominican Republic, where over 25,000 storm victims in the Dominican Republic have been evacuated 18 in neighboring Haiti and one in Jamaica. The storm may pass within 130 miles (209 kilometers) of Florida, bringing heavy downpours, gusty winds and pounding surf, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. (Bloomberg)
