After destroying hundreds of homes in Cuba, Paloma has been downgraded to a tropical depression by the National Hurricane Center.
At 4 p.m. EST, Paloma's center was 15 miles (25 km) south-southwest of Camaguey, Cuba. Once as strong as 145 mph (230 kph), the storm's winds had weakened to 35 mph (55 kph). Paloma was drifting toward the north at about 1 mph (2 kph). The Hurricane Center forecast put Paloma or its remnants near the north coast of Cuba on Monday.
Cuba's state media says the storm toppled a major communications tower and interrupted electricity and phone service. No storm-related deaths were immediately reported.
Paloma roared ashore near Santa Cruz del Sur late Saturday as a Category 4 hurricane. Forecasters say the Cuban and Bahamian governments discontinued all warnings associated with Paloma by Sunday morning.
