Emily's path still up in the air

The National Weather Service is still saying if Tropical Storm Emily behaves as predicted weather effects here should be minimum, but that could change.
The service's National Hurricane Center's 8 a.m. report said the storm started to move again late Wednesday after stalling, but that it was still not very organized and moving slow. It was about 100 miles south-southeast of Port Au Prince, Haiti. That's 17.1 north and 71.8 west, if you're tracking the storm.
It's moving west-northwest at about 7 mph. Sustained winds are about 50 mph. It is bringing lots of rain to Hispania and is expected to make landfall on the Haiti side sometime today.
"A turn toward the northwest with an increase in speed is expected during the next day or so," the forecast said.
If that turn is not made, storm watches could be issued for south Florida later today and, by implication, Georgia's coast would be more likely to see storm conditions in the next few days.
