Parts of the northwestern Bahamas that were recently pummeled by Hurricane Dorian are expected to experience heavy winds and rain over the weekend.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said late Friday night that the storm was located about 130 miles (209 kilometers) east-southeast Great Abaco Island and moving northwest at 6 mph (10 kph). It had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (64 kph).

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the northwestern Bahamas, excluding Andros Island.

A tropical storm watch is no longer in effect for central Florida’s eastern coast, but forecasters say those on the coast should monitor developments.
