Will Tropical Storm Erika hit Florida? Many factors at play

This NOAA satellite image taken Friday, Aug. 28, 2015 at 9:45 AM EDT shows a poorly organized Tropical Storm Erika located just to the Southwest of Puerto Rico. Erika currently has winds of 50 miles an hour and is producing heavy rainfall over Hispaniola and the surrounding islands in the Eastern Caribbean. Erika will continue moving to the west-northwest over Hispaniola. Fair weather can be expected across the rest of the Caribbean with only typical summertime showers and thunderstorms. (Weather Underground via AP)ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tropical Storm Erika has the potential to rake Florida's west coast with heavy rains starting late Sunday or early Monday.

New Turkish cabinet includes opposition, but little policy change seen

Davutoglu speaks during a meeting at his ruling AK Party headquarters in AnkaraBy Gulsen Solaker and Orhan Coskun ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu appointed nationalist and pro-Kurdish opposition politicians to an interim power-sharing cabinet on Friday, but left his finance and economy ministers unchanged in a team dominated by ruling party loyalists. Davutoglu was forced to form the temporary cabinet after his AK Party failed to find a junior coalition partner following the loss of its parliamentary majority in a June election which ended more than a decade of single-party rule. The uncertainty has unnerved investors in Turkey's $870 billion economy and comes as it battles Kurdish militants at home and Islamic State fighters on its borders, helping send the lira currency to a series of record lows.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said there were not sufficient grounds for the preliminary injunction imposed by the lower court.

Cars drive in the rain and past fallen pieces of palm trees in Santo DomingoBy David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) – Tropical Storm Erika threatened Haiti and the Dominican Republic with heavy rain and strong winds on Friday as it swirled across the Caribbean and geared up for a run at south Florida, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. At least 12 people were confirmed dead on the island of Dominica, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said on Twitter, adding: "The number may be higher." Due to some likely weakening over mountainous areas, Erika was no longer forecast to make landfall in the United States as a hurricane. Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency on Friday, noting the storm could travel "up the spine of Florida" from Sunday into next week.
