Tropical Storm Maria To Bring Even More Damage to Carib…

Tropical Storm Maria was expected to reach hurricane status on Sunday, and hurricane watches were in effect for several Caribbean islands, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

Some of the islands were devastated by Hurricane Irma earlier this month.

Maria was about 410 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles islands with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour at 8 a.m. EST, the NHC said.
