Haiti's capital may dodge worst of Tropical Storm Emily
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Forecasters say Tropical Storm Emily will drop a huge amount of rain on the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
But it appears the worst of the storm will largely spare Haitian capital, where hundreds of thousands of people are sill homeless from last year's earthquake.
Michel Davison of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says parts of the Dominican Republic and rural Haiti could see up to 50.8 cm of rain over the next 36 hours.
Emily is expected to reach the southwestern Dominican coast late Wednesday. If it clears the mountains that divide Hispaniola, the storm is expected to then track across northern Haiti.
