Tropical Storm Elsa moves towards Florida from Cuba

After causing devastation in the Caribbean, Tropical Storm Elsa is moving north towards the Florida Keys.

More than 100,000 people in Cuba were evacuated before Elsa hit on Monday, causing mudslides and "flooding rains".

In the days before, the storm passed over the Dominican Republic and St Lucia, killing three people, BBC reported.

Officials in Florida have said they are "very hopeful" that they won't have to pause rescue efforts at the site of a collapsed building in Miami.

The demolition of the partially collapsed apartment block had been brought forward, for fear that Elsa might topple the building in an uncontrolled way.
