Debby Looms Off Florida

Fears of flooding rose in Florida as Tropical Storm Debby ground to a halt in the Gulf of Mexico on Monday. Rain continued to pour down on the state, and at least one person was reported dead as a result of tornadoes spun off by the storm. High winds were replaced by flooding as the first concern along Florida’s coast as residents of low-lying areas were encouraged to head to higher ground—some areas of the state could get as much as 25 inches of rain, according to forecasters. A 32-year-old man is missing after being swept up by rough surf off the coast of Alabama on Sunday.
