Emily breaks up after soaking Haiti

Taiwan News Online: "Former Tropical Storm Emily has broken apart after causing floods and damaging hundreds of homes in Haiti.
National Hurricane Center forecasters in Miami, Florida, said late Thursday that the storm is now a low pressure system that is dumping rains over Hispaniola. All watches and warnings have been canceled.

Strong winds whipped through palm trees in the capital of Haiti while heavier rains fell further north, damaging homes as well as a cholera treatment center. But there were no reports of deaths."
