Tropical Storm Fiona degrades; no threat to Bermuda
Fiona is moving just to the east of Bermuda and is lashing the island with winds of just at or below minimal tropical storm strength. A tropical storm warning has been cancelled but a small craft advisory is in effect through Saturaday.
Residents and visitors should still be cautious as there could be strong thunderstorms associated with the remnants of Fiona.
