It’s been more than a week since Tropical Storm Debby dropped more than 2 feet of rain in some places in North Central Florida. The storm caused major river flooding which closed several key highways and inundated many area homes.

The storm is forecast to be the most destructive to hit the Panhandle in decades and expected to send life-threatening surges of ocean water into coastal areas along the Gulf of Mexico.
