Fast-moving Tropical Storm Elsa lashed the New Jersey coast with high winds and soaked New York City as it churned up the East Coast on Friday. Elsa had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (80 kph), forecasters said. Around 8 Friday, it was centered about 90 miles (145 kilometers) southwest of Montauk Point, New York. The system was already blamed for one death in Florida on Wednesday. And Elsa also previously caused a damaging tornado in Georgia.
