The storm came ashore South of Tallahassee at about 12:30AM CDT and set to knocking over trees and light poles in an area that hasn’t seen a hurricane in half a century. Without power keeping ahead of the flooding that is coming is going to be even more challenging, especially for water treatment plants. The storm is in Georgia at 7AM CDT, and will make for soggy, windy Labor Day weekend for the Atlantic Coast.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Edisto Beach to Sandy Hook, Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds, Chesapeake Bay from Drum Point southward, Tidal Potomac from Cobb Island eastward and Delaware Bay.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for North of Sandy Hook to west of Watch Hill.
