MIAMI (AP) -- Former Tropical Storm Emily has disintegrated into just storm remnants after dumping heavy rains in the Bahamas.

The National Hurricane Center said Sunday afternoon that Emily no longer had the features of a tropical storm. It was moving away from the Bahamas and the U.S. East Coast. It was about 295 miles (475 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., with winds at about 30 mph (45 kph).

Forecasters say it supposed to move out to sea. The hurricane center said the 5 p.m. advisory would be the last on the storm.

Emily had broken apart after causing floods and damaging hundreds of homes in Haiti.
