CIMSS Satellite Loop
The disorganized circulation of then Tropical Storm Cristobal can be seen drenching the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Torrential rainfall from developing Hurricane Cristobal killed at least five people across the Caribbean and halted air transportation in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Cristobal was still only a tropical storm when it drenched that British Overseas Territory with 12 inches of rainfall.

The storm then attained hurricane strength and passed over the open waters of the Atlantic, midway between the U.S. eastern seaboard and Bermuda.
