ST. GEORGE ISLAND, Fla. - Debby is expected to head out into the Atlantic later Wednesday, but forecasters warn that the weakened storm still poses a flooding and tornado threat even if it doesn't pack the same punch.
The National Hurricane Center downgraded Debby from a tropical storm to a tropical depression Tuesday night as it slogged across northern Florida toward the Atlantic coast.
But forecasters say a combination of storm surge and tide could bring flooding to coastal areas that have already been drenched by the storm that sat virtually motionless in the Gulf of Mexico for several days.
The hurricane center said late Tuesday that Debby was 110 miles west of Daytona Beach and moving southeastward at 7 mph.
