Tropical Storm Elsa continues its path towards Florida, United States, and is expected to make landfall in Tampa on Tuesday night, July 6, or early Wednesday, later crossing the peninsula from west to east.
The National Hurricane Center (CNH) located the center of the storm about 70 kilometers east of Kingston, Jamaica, and 235 km southeast of Cabo Cruz, Cuba, with sustained winds of 100 km / h.
The CNH added that heavy rains and tropical storm winds are predicted to spread over eastern Cuba in the next few hours this Sunday. The system decreased its power in its passage through southern Haiti last Saturday.
Elsa will make landfall in Cuba on Monday morning, before reaching the Straits of Florida in the afternoon. It would then pass near Key West, then continue north along Florida’s Gulf Coast all Tuesday.
Elsa has left three dead on her way through the Dominican Republic and Saint Lucia.
On the other hand, Elsa’s presence forced demolition work to be carried out on the building that partially collapsed in Miami-Dade on June 24.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said that “we have a building here in Surfside that is tottering, it is structurally defective. If the building is torn down, this will protect our search and rescue teams. “
The authorities of Miami-Dade County in Florida, United States, indicated that last Saturday two more bodies were found in the rubble of the building that collapsed. Thus, the number of deaths left by the partial collapse of the structure is 24.
