So no we are not looking at a major hurricane or even a hurricane for that matter. What we're looking at is Tropical Storm Debby, with winds of around 45 MPH and is preparing for a landfall in the Gulf Coast of Florida. Florida is very much used to tropical storms, the last one to hit was just 2 years ago (Bonnie) and that didn't leave much of a mark, Claudette caused minor impacts too and Fay caused considerably major flooding but to many, that was just considered one of these more rare events. Well it appears that this tropical storm is not your typical 'weak system'. Packed with torrential downpours and winds well away from the center, pretty much everyone in Central Florida upwards is getting a major soaker now but the Big Bend (Apalachicola area) is getting the brunt of Debby. Very dangerous flash floods continue to pose a danger to anyone trying to travel in the Wakulla County area where a flash flood emergency has been issued. The Governor of Florida has declared a state of emergency as of recently and anyone in areas affected the most by these floodwaters are encouraged not to travel and seek as high ground as possible. Here in South Florida, Debby is expected to be felt to a much lesser extent today but impacts are out there with brief gusty winds, scattered to numerous showers and a slight chance of a weak tornado or two. Stay safe.
