Fay Visiting the Beach, Then Heading Out on I-10

Tropical Storm Fay is drifting slowly along the east coast of Florida this morning. At 11 am, the storm was centered about 15 miles north of Cape Canaveral, moving north at only 3 mph. Maximum winds are still around 50 mph, and the storm has maintained most of its organization; no significant change in strength is expected today. Fay is expected to gradually turn more westward, tracking near route I-10 across northern Florida. The slow movement of the storm is producing very large amounts of rainfall, ranging as high as 21 inches near Melbourne.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect from Fort Pierce northward to Altahama Sound, Georgia, and a Tropical Storm Watch extends northward from there to the Savannah River. The Hurricane Watch previously in effect has been canceled.
