热带风暴菲利普给古巴带来了强降雨后星期六晚逼近佛罗里达礁岛群和巴哈马群岛。

位于迈阿密的美国国家飓风中心说,菲利普星期六下午在古巴附近海域生成后迅速移动,最大风速为每小时65公里,星期六晚位于佛罗里达礁岛群以南约120公里。

佛罗里达礁岛群和佛罗里达州南部9月份曾遭到4级飓风艾玛的重创。飓风带来了强风、降雨和危险的海潮。艾玛造成的损失高达300亿美元。

美国国家飓风中心表示, 古巴西部和中部的降雨量在4至6英寸。佛罗里达南部的降雨量到星期天晚可达到6英寸。

Tropical Storm Philippe Headed for Florida, Bahamas

Tropical Storm Philippe is soaking Cuba with heavy rains before heading toward the Florida Keys later Saturday, and on to the Bahamas by Sunday morning.

Philippe, which formed Saturday afternoon off the Cuba coast, was moving quickly, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), which is based in Miami.

The NHC said Philippe, which had top winds of 65 kph (40 mph), was about 120 kilometers (75 miles) south of the Florida Keys late Saturday.

The Florida Keys and South Florida were hit in September by Category 4 Hurricane Irma, which brought punishing winds and rains, and a dangerous tidal surge. Irma caused about $30 billion in damage.

The NHC said western and central Cuba could see up 4 to 10 inches (1- to 25 centimeters) of rain, and areas of South Florida could see up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of rain by Sunday night.
