June 23 - severe weather outlook - Tropical Storm Debby? 15% threat for ID/MT & NY/CT/RI/MA/VT/NH/ME

Skooter reporting 06/25/12

Tropical Storm Debby whipped Florida with rain and brought up rough surf off Alabama on Sunday, prompting to issue storm warnings for those states and left at least one dead. The said death in Florida was finger pointed on a tornado set off by the storm, while a man went missing in the Gulf of Mexico at an Alabama beach.

The tropical storm warnings were issued for Coastal Alabama and parts of Florida, including the Panhandle. Due to storm’s unpredictable nature, forecasters withdrew a tropical storm warning for Louisiana after forecast models showed Debby wasn’t likely turn west.

Debby already has unloaded heavy rain on parts of Florida and set off some isolated tornadoes, causing damage to homes and cut off power lines. Massive winds forced the closure of an interstate bridge that runs across Tampa Bay and connects St. Petersburg with areas to the southeast. Residents in several counties near the crook of Florida's elbow were advised to leave low-lying neighborhoods because of the threat of flash flooding.

Debby's center was more or less stationary about 110 miles (180 km) south-southwest of Apalachicola, Fla., on Sunday evening. Debby's top sustained winds were at about 60 mph (95 kph).
