Storm track has been adjusted a little further west — and storm strength was lowered slightly prior to Tomas moving just west of Haiti early tomorrow morning.  However – its the right side or specifically the NE quadrant of hurricanes/tropical storms that are associated with the greatest lift/rain forcing and coastal storm surge as water will be moving onshore on the southern half of Haiti (maybe on the order of 2-5 feet near the beaches on the south coast). Flooding rain and winds gusting 50-65 mph will be the main impacts.
