A new storm brought rain and wind to the hurricane-ravaged Bahamas , with the National Hurricane Centre warning it could turn into a tropical storm

Early Friday, tropical disturbances swept over the central Bahamas , packing winds of 45km/h and expected to drop 8 to 13cm of rain through Sunday.

There is an 80 percent chance that it will turn into a stronger tropical depression, or even a tropical storm named Humberto, in the next day or so as it crawls at 5km/h across the Bahamas and takes aim at Florida, the NHC said.

A tropical storm watch was issued for portions of the coast of east-central Florida late Thursday and South Florida could see tropical storm force winds as early as Friday evening, the NHC said.

With 1,300 people still missing, according to the Bahamian government, relief services are focused on search-and-rescue, as well as providing life-sustaining food, water and shelter.

The prime minister of the Bahamas, Hubert Minnis, on Wednesday said the official death toll stood at 50 but was expected to rise.

Officials have erected large tents in Nassau to house those made homeless by Dorian and plan to erect tent cities on Abaco capable of sheltering up to 4,000 people.
