Forecasters with the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Saturday that it was less likely that Bonnie would strengthen as the storm heads toward the site of the blown-out oil well in the Gulf.
The center of Bonnie came ashore Friday near Cutler Bay, about 20 miles south of Miami. It moved into the eastern Gulf and was about 215 miles east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River at 8 a.m. EDT Saturday.
Forecasters say they will likely discontinue a tropical storm warning from Destin, Fla. to Morgan City, La., later Saturday.
Bonnie is moving west-northwest near 20 mph.
