Tropical Storm Debby was downgraded to a tropical depression yesterday, and most of the heavy rains across Florida and south Georgia have come to an end.
At 5 a.m. the poorly defined center of Debby was about 25 miles southeast of St. Augustine, Florida. The storm was moving east-northeast at 10 miles per hour.
The Florida Highway Patrol closed portions of Interstate 10 in north Florida early Tuesday due to flooding and warned motorists to use extreme caution on other parts of the highway.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm has top sustained winds of 35 mph -- with higher gusts.
Debby should continue moving into the Atlantic Ocean over the next several days, drifting farther and farther away from Middle Georgia. Outside of occasional wind gusts of 20 mph today, the system will have no more impact on our weather. As Debby continues into the Atlantic, it may re-intensify and become a tropical storm once again.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott declared a statewide emergency.
