Colin dissipates as it passes by Bermuda

MIAMI (AP) - Colin has weakened even further to a remnant of a tropical depression as the storm passed by Bermuda.

Colin's maximum sustained winds were about 30 mph (45 kph) Sunday. The storm's center steered clear of a direct hit to Bermuda.

A tropical storm watch was canceled for the British territory, but forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Bermuda could see 1 to 2 inches of rain and wind gusts.

The storm was about 60 miles (100 kilometers) northwest of Bermuda and is moving north around 12 mph (19 kph).

In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Estelle is weakening with top sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph). The storm poses no immediate threat to land.
