Beryl Drenches Georgia, Florida

It’s not much of a holiday weekend for folks on the east coast of Florida this Monday. Tropical Storm Beryl rolled into the area early in the morning on Memorial Day, causing Gov. Rick Scott to warn residents to “stay alert and aware.” The storm brought with it heavy rains and winds that neared hurricane strength, approaching 70 miles per hour. The storm was downgraded to a tropical depression just before noon, drenching the coast with much-needed rain, although holiday travel today is expected to be affected by the storm.
