East Coast Prepares For Heavy Rain From Andrea

Tropical Storm Andrea is already generating tornadoes in Florida, with more than a half-dozen confirmed today across the state.

The storm, with top winds of 60 miles an hour, is pelting Florida’s Gulf Coast with rain and wind as it moves toward the coasts of Georgia and the Carolinas.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott says he’s thankful that it’s a fast-moving storm, since it won’t have as much time to dump rain and cause flooding.

It’s still expected to bring as much as six inches of rain to the Carolinas.

On Cumberland Island off the Georgia coast, the National Park Service has been evacuating campers as the storm approached. Forecasters expect the storm to pass through Georgia tonight, and the island will likely re-open to tourists tomorrow.

One man who owns a vacation lodging rental service on the northern end of North Carolina’s Outer Banks says he expects all outdoor activities to be washed out tomorrow, sending tens of thousands of early-summer vacationers toward unexpected indoor shopping sprees.
