Tropical storm moves away from the Gulf Stream and will soon weaken

Whitmer demands answers from Enbridge on pipeline damage

MIAMI (AP) – Tropical Storm Dolly began moving away from the warm waters of the Gulf Stream over the North Atlantic on Tuesday and is expected to disappear by mid-week.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said that Dolly has a maximum sustained wind of 75 mph (75 km / h), but is expected to weaken as it moves across colder waters in the next day.

The storm, which formed earlier on Tuesday, is expected to turn into a post-tropical storm on Wednesday and then bottom out, predictors said.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Dolly was about 605 miles (975 kilometers) southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, moving east-northeast at 12 mph (19 km / h). It did not pose a threat to any country.
