Rare storm lashes Dominican Republic

Dec 12 - A rare tropical storm in the Dominican Republican left at least seven people dead and caused thousands to flee their homes.

Olga's top sustained winds dropped to 40 mph (65 kph), barely strong enough to be called a tropical storm, and forecasters expected it to dissipate by Thursday.

But the storm was expected to drench the southeast Bahamas and eastern Cuba, while dumping several more inches of rain on Hispaniola, where totals could reach 10 inches (25 cm), forecasters said.
