Tropical Storm Debby

Florida has declared a state of emergency after Tropical Storm Debby (now a depression) moved across the state, dumping record amounts of rainfall which led to widespread flooding in many areas. Debby is already the fourth named storm in the Atlantic Basin this season, setting a record for the earliest this has ever occurred.  Debby, which officially became a tropical storm on June 23rd, formed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and was nearly stationary for several days, inundating much of Florida’s Gulf coast, panhandle and northeastern region with record amounts of rainfall and flooding, strong winds and storm surge.
