Tropical Storm Debby drenched Florida with heavy rain over the weekend, and has prompted tropical storm warnings for parts of Northern and Western Florida. Debby’s 45 MPH Winds are far from hurricane levels, but flooding from heavy rainfall is still a major concern.

Debby has already killed one person in Florida and has been blamed for the disappearance of a vacationer in Alabama.

Debby is currently heading east through Central Florida, but Hurricane paths are notoriously difficult to predict. Tropical Storm warnings in Louisiana and Alabama have been discontinued.

Although the Houston area is no longer threatened, Tropical Storm Debby serves as an important wake-up-call to stay prepared during this hurricane season.
