LINK - Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Jeanne is battering Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands this afternoon. St. Thomas, V. I., is be hammered by wind gusts over 50 mph and San Juan, P. R., is reporting 45-mph gusts. Jeanne, located over eastern Puerto Rico now, is swirling toward the WNW and is forecast to brush along the north coast of the Dominican Republic tomorrow. Jeanne may intensify into hurricane once it departs Puerto Rico and probably will continue strengthening as it churns through the Turks and Caicos Islands and Bahamas late this week and weekend.
