Miami (dpa) - Tropical Storm Jose, downgraded Thursday from a hurricane, was heading toward open seas after churning through the eastern Caribbean where it ripped off roofs, knocked down trees and caused flooding.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said that at 2100 GMT, Jose was near latitude 19.2 north and longitude 65.7 west, about 90 kilometres north-northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

It was moving west northwest at 15 kilometres per hour and was expected to turn north on Friday. Sustained winds of 100 kilometres per hour extended outward up to 220 kilometres.
