Like the guest who overstays her welcome, tropical storm Debby is inclined to just sit over the Florida panhandle – and dump more rain than any host could possibly absorb. How much longer will it stay?
The Florida Highway Patrol closed portions of Interstate 10 (I-10) in north Florida early Tuesday due to flooding caused by tropical storm Debby. Troopers reported several areas of flooding on a roughly 50-mile stretch of the east-west interstate east of where it crosses I-75.
Tropical Storm Debby, its accompanying winds and rains brought flooding to parts of Florida. Rick Scott, the state's governor, declared a state of emergency. The storm is expected to travel further inland as the week progresses.
