Tropical Storm Mindy hits Florida panhandle
TRT World says a swath of the Florida panhandle has been placed under a tropical storm warning after Tropical Storm Mindy made landfall.
The storm touched down over St. Vincent Island, about 15 km west southwest of Apalachicola on Wednesday, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Mindy could cause as much as 15 centimeters of rainfall across the Florida Panhandle and portions of southern Georgia and South Carolina through on Thursday morning, the National Hurricane Center said. Scattered flash, urban, and small-stream floods are possible.
Mindy’s arrival occurred only a few hours after it had strengthened into a tropical storm on Wednesday evening.
Tropical Storm Mindy is moving through the Florida Panhandle tracking east. It will bring some areas up to 6" of rain (flooding), high winds, and an isolated tornado potential. #15Fury @nicholasweather pic.twitter.com/hK1jWKeYfR
