Paula now a tropical depression

Paula has weakened to a tropical depression and is expected to drench central Cuba and the central Bahamas, forecasters said on Friday.

The Miami, Florida-based National Hurricane Center's 5 a.m. ET advisory  says the storm is expected to produce additional rain accumulations of one to two inches, but storm surge flooding along the coast of northern Cuba should subside.

The depression, which had been a tropical storm, was about 60 miles northwest of Caibarien, Cuba. Mxamimum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts. The storm is expected to weaken over the next 48 hours and become a "remnant low pressure area."

There were no coastal watches or warnings.
