With 40 mph winds, Tropical Storm Ernesto was moving toward the northwest at 10 mph over Cuba at 2 p.m. on Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The center expects the storm to continue moving in that direction for the next 24 hours, a track that could bring it along the eastern coast of Florida later this week.
Flagler College’s Public Information Office says the college is constantly monitoring active storms, and if there is any threat to the area, Flagler will begin taking necessary steps to protect students and the campus.
