US forecasters have downgraded Tropical Storm Fay to a tropical depression after it quickly weakened once it made landfall in New Jersey. The National Hurricane Centre in Miami said the storm had maximum sustained winds of 35mph as it moved over southern New York. It was located 50 miles north of New York City. A tropical storm warning that had been issued from East Rockaway, New York, to Watch Hill, Rhode Island, was cancelled. Fay was expected to move north over parts of eastern New York later on Saturday, then into western New England and south-eastern Canada. Forecasters say it was moving at 17mph.
