As of Sunday morning, Danny—once a Category Three hurricane—had weakened into a tropical storm with winds near 50 mph/85 km/h, with higher gusts. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said additional weakening was expected during the next 48 hours.
A tropical storm warning was in effect for Antigua, Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis and Anguilla. A tropical storm watch was in effect for Saba and St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, Guadeloupe, St. Barthelemy and St. Martin.
Forecasters said interests in the US and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic should monitor Danny's progress, and additional watches or warnings may be issued.
