SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Tropical Storm Chantal is threatening to turn into a hurricane as it churns toward Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where it's expected to strike by this afternoon.

Dominican officials are telling people living in low-lying areas to evacuate, but few are taking heed.

One man in Santo Domingo says, "We can't just go and leave behind our belongings." Puerto Rico also is being warned about the storm, which could bring flooding and possible landslides.
