MIAMI (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Emily killed four people in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, authorities said on Friday, as remnants of the storm drifted over the Caribbean with a "high chance" of restrengthening into a tropical cyclone.

Emily, the fifth named storm of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season, dissipated Thursday as it approached mountainous Hispaniola island, which is shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The storm's leftovers posed no threat to oil and gas production facilities in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, and most forecasts showed the system keeping well off the southeast U.S. coast.
