NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - Power is out in parts of the Bahamas after a blow from Hurricane Sandy. It weakened to a Category 1 storm overnight, with top winds of 80 miles an hour, but not before flooding roads and cutting off islands in the Bahamas.
One man died in a fall from his roof while trying to repair a window shutter. Officials in the Bahamas say the storm seems to have inflicted the greatest damage on the island of Exuma, where there are reports of downed trees, power lines and damage to homes. In all, the storm is linked to 29 deaths across the Caribbean.
And it's now on a path that could see it blend with a winter storm as it hits the U.S. East Coast early next week. The hurricane left 11 people dead in Cuba as its winds and rain toppled houses and ripped off roofs.
