ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland (AP) — Tropical Storm Leslie has begun moving inland over Newfoundland in eastern Canada.
The storm's maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 kph).
The storm is centered about 35 miles (55 kilometers) south of Stones Cove, Newfoundland and is moving north-northeast near 40 mph (65 kph).
Canadian officials have warned of possible flooding from Leslie. The Canadian Hurricane Centre predicted at least 12 hours of intense rain over the northeastern province's hilly terrain, which could generate rapid runoffs.
