Bermuda feels effects of Leslie's outer bands
HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) -- The outer bands of Tropical Storm Leslie are pelting Bermuda with rain and gusty winds.
Many roads are littered with tree branches and other debris, and the Bermuda Electric Light Company says there have been scattered power outages.
The airport is closed and all bus and sea ferry services have been halted. Schools will be closed to students tomorrow, though teachers and principals are still expected to report to their jobs.
Satellite images show the large storm dwarfing the tiny British territory, but Leslie isn't expected to make a direct hit. Its center is expected to pass to Bermuda's east.
At midday, the storm's center was about 140 miles east of Bermuda, moving north at 10 mph. Tropical storm winds extended up to 195 miles from the center.
Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 60 mph, well below the hurricane threshold of 74 mph. But forecasters say Leslie could regain hurricane strength tomorrow over open ocean before a possible strike on Newfoundland and perhaps even Iceland toward the end of the week.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
