Tropical Storm Debby: Southern Bahamas Still in Harm's WayAired August 23, 2000 - 1:04 p.m. ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
KYRA PHILLIPS, CNN ANCHOR: Parts of the Bahamas could get battered before Debby's done, so let's check in with CNN's David Lewis, who joins us now by phone from Nassau.
David, I understand the action is more south from you, is that right?
DAVID LEWIS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Yes, I'm in the northern Bahamas, and up here there's really no problem at all. The skies are blue, people are on the beach, the little drinks with umbrellas in them are being passed out pool-side where water aerobics is going on.
But even though it's fun here, down south in the Bahamas, they're a little more worried. They have still a warning there. And, of course, in the Dominican Republic and in the Turks and Caicos. The picture you're seeing now from the Dominican Republic are -- they have had rain there, they have had high winds, but there's been no real damage, no real problems thus far.
And, of course, here in the Bahamas things are fine and people do not want to see any hurricane in this area.
PHILLIPS: Well, we can understand that. David Lewis, you're definitely in the right spot. Thank you.
Well, you can track Debby on CNN's Web site. We have full information on the storm's location and strength, and a listing of areas under watches and warnings. You can find it at CNN.com.
