Hurricane Tomas still has winds of 75 mph in the Atlantic

After slamming Haiti, Cuba, the southern Bahamas, and The Turks and Caicos Islands, Tomas is still a hurricane.  As the storm pushes into the Atlantic Ocean, winds are still 75 mph, but it is expected to weaken during the day as stronger wind shear and colder water influences the storm.
Hurricane force winds extend 20 miles from the center, while tropical storm force winds reach 200 miles away.

Haiti appears to have been spared the worst as the strongest winds with Tomas stayed just west of Haiti. While heavy rain did hit the island with flooding rain, the vast majority of refugees appear to have survived. We may not have information from remote regions for days.
