Hurricane Cristobal, Aug 26, 2014.

A tropical storm watch is posted for Bermuda as Hurricane Cristobal moves north after killing at least four people in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and the Turks and Caicos islands.

Forecasters predict Cristobal, a Category One storm with winds of 130 kilometers per hour, will move between Bermuda and the U.S. east coast Wednesday, bringing heavy rain and high winds to the popular tourist island.

The storm is not expected to threaten the United States, but could cause deadly surf and rip currents from Florida to North Carolina.
