Florida remains in Hurricane Elsa’s long-range forecast path

Cubans to feel Elsa’s impact Sunday, Monday

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Hurricane Elsa will be moving in the eastern Caribbean toward the west-northwest through Saturday. The National Hurricane Center’s long-range forecast path still includes Florida.

The hurricane was set to move across the central Caribbean Sea near the southern coast of Hispaniola Saturday night. Jamaica, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic were under a hurricane warning.

Cuba is set to feel the impact on Sunday and Monday. The island’s provinces of Camaguey, Granma, Guantanamo, Holguin, Las Tunas, and Santiago de Cuba were under a hurricane watch.

Even if the hurricane tilts westward on Monday and Tuesday, there remained a high possibility of thunderstorms in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
