Hurricane Elsa path tracker LIVE: Severe weather including tornadoes, storm surges, & heavy rain makes way to Florida

HURRICANE Elsa was downgraded to a tropical storm on Saturday but continues to barrel its way towards Florida.

The storm is forecast to hit Cuba next on a path that puts it on a collision course with the Sunshine State.

Bringing with it 70mph winds, three people have been killed by the storm as it battered the southern coasts of Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Saturday.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Elsa could hit the US as early as Tuesday morning – first hitting Florida, before making its way to Georgia and South Carolina.

Elsa was the earliest fifth named storm on record, beating out last year’s Eduardo which formed on July 6, according to Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach.
