Tropical Storm Emily - the fifth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season - could affect Florida by the weekend, according to projections from the National Hurricane Center.

Emily, with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles an hour, is still poorly organized, the hurricane center said in its latest advisory. As of this morning, the storm was 265 miles southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Guadeloupe, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. A tropical storm watch is in effect for the U.S. Virgin Islands and Haiti.

Emily is expected to move across the northeastern Caribbean Sea today and approach Hispaniola tonight and Wednesday. Slow strengthening is possible during the next day or so.
