Tomas kills 14 in St. Lucia, threatens Haiti "PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti— At least 21 people were missing or dead after Tropical Storm Tomas swept over the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia as it headed toward Jamaica and the tent cities of Haiti.
An American tourist was reportedly among those killed.
Tomas weakened to a Tropical Depression early Wednesday, but was forecast to pick up strength over the next two days and a hurricane watch for Jamaica was issued by the U.S. National Hurricane Center.
Haiti, the Dominican Republic and southeastern Cuba were also warned to monitor Tomas's progress with forecasters warned of a 'significant threat' to those areas later this week."
