What was Tropical Depression Gabrielle dissipated and ceased to be a tropical cyclone Thursday night, but its remnants still posed a heavy rain threat to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.
As of 11 p.m., Gabrielle's remnants had maximum sustained winds of 30 mph and were moving north-northwest at 9 mph about 30 miles north-northwest of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, the National Hurricane Center said.
Gabrielle was downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression Thursday morning.
No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.
The remnants of Gabrielle, which became the seventh named storm of the season late Wednesday, are expected to head north-northwest or north for the next day or two.
Its remnants could still bring between 2-4 inches of rain to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands with isolated amounts of up to 8 inches. The rains could cause dangerous flash floods and mud slides over mountainous terrain.
