In Puerto Rico, Irene caused heavy flooding, landslides and Gov. Luis Fortuno said on Wednesday that 765 people remain in shelters, two days after he declared a state of emergency.

In the Dominican Republic, flooding, rising rivers and mudslides have prompted the government to evacuate nearly 38,000 people.

In Bahamas, Capt. Stephen Russell tells The Associated Press that the Category 3 hurricane had at least caused 90 percent of the homes in the settlements on Acklins and Crooked islands severely damaged or destroyed >>> please click here for updated photos <<<.

Irene was expected to become a Category 4 hurricane by Thursday as it passes over the northwestern Bahamas en route to the eastern U.S. coast, said the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida.

Landslides in Jamaica

30 09 2010

Tropical Storm Nicole caused floods and landslides in Jamaica, Wednesday, September 29, 2010.

Tropical Storm Nicole caused flooding and mudslides across Jamaica on Wednesday, leaving two confirmed dead and at least 12 more missing.

The outer bands of the storm hammered Jamaica, toppling bridges and knocking out power to thousands.

Many streets were filled with gushing brown torrents of water.

Prime Minister Bruce Golding to urge people to stay indoors.

Many Jamaicans were taken by surprise by the ferocity of the rain early Wednesday and the extent of the damage;  for it happened when the tropical system was classified as a depression.

Police in Westmoreland parish’s capital of Savanna-la-Mar said the community was hit by a waterspout overnight that ripped the roofs off a couple of buildings and sent four people to a local hospital with scrapes.

This is a disaster.

The storm also soaked Cuba but no deaths were reported.

In Mexico, landslides killed at least 20 people.

Tropical Storm Nicole brought heavy rains to Jamaica, Wednesday, September 29,2010.

This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 1:45 PM EDT shows widespread cloud cover over the Eastern Seaboard due to an elongated trough of low pressure over the region and Tropical Storm Nicole located 80 miles northeast of Havana Cuba. While the circulation of Nicole becomes poorly defined, Nicole is moving toward the north-northeast near 10 mph with maximum sustained winds near 40 mph. Nicole is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 5 to 10 inches over the Cayman Islands, Jamaica, and Cuba. Rain accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible over portions of southern Florida, the Florida Keys, and the central and northwest Bahamas. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides. In addition to strong winds and significant rainfall, isolated tornadoes are possible along the immediate coast of southeastern Florida and the Florida Keys. Meanwhile, a steady stream of tropical moisture surging up the East Coast combines with a frontal boundary over the Mid-Atlantic coast fuels widely scattered showers and locally heavy rainfall from the Carolinas through New Jersey.

This NOAA satellite image taken Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 1:45 PM EDT. Isolated maximum amounts of 20 inches are possible over the higher elevations of Cuba and Jamaica.Rain accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible over portions of southern Florida, the Florida Keys, and the central and northwest Bahamas. These rains could cause life-threatening flash floods and mud slides. Elsewhere, a tropical wave over the Central Atlantic located about 700 miles east of the Windward Islands is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Winds are expected to become less favorable for development as the system moves to the northwest at 15 to 20 mph. There is a low chance, 10 percent, of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next couple of days. Meanwhile to the east, showers and thunderstorms have increased near another tropical wave located over the east-central Tropical Atlantic centered about 850 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Some slow development is possible over the next several days as it moves to the west at 15 to 20 mph. There is a low chance, 10 percent, of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next couple of days. (AP Photo/Weather Underground)
