Weakening Tropical Depression Danny crosses into Caribbean

The system weakened into a tropical depression and then degenerated to a trough of low pressure, with maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (45 kph) as it passed through the Leeward Islands and crossed into the Caribbean Sea.

The storm and its remnants were expected to produce 2 inches to 4 inches of rain in the Leeward Islands and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, as well as in drought-stricken Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
