UNDATED (AP) — Tropical Storm Alex, the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, is bearing down toward Bermuda after killing three people in Cuba and causing flooding in parts of Florida. Alex reached tropical storm force after strengthening off Florida’s east coast yesterday. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Alex had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph and was centered about 325 miles west of Bermuda last evening. It was moving east-northeast at a brisk 26 mph and is expected to pass near or just north of Bermuda today.
