Erika's demise

Wind shear continues to take a bite out of Tropical Storm Erika, which could soon be nothing more than a gusty rainmaker.

Tropical-storm warnings have been posted, meanwhile, for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm could bring as many as 8 inches of rain to Puerto Rico. Other islands in its path could also see heavy rains as Erika erodes into a depression and then simply a low.

Florida could face some impact from Erika next week. Computer models, however, are coming to a more consensus northerly turn.
