Tropical Storm Debby Weakens to Tropical Depression

Rains from Tropical Storm Debby force residents of New Port Richey, Florida to make their way through a flooded street in a boat, June 26, 2012 (AP).
Tropical Storm Debby has been downgraded to a tropical depression after making landfall Tuesday on the Florida Gulf Coast.

The National Hurricane Center has cancelled its tropical storm warnings. But forecasters say heavy rain, coastal flooding, and possible tornadoes can still be expected as Debby crosses central Florida to the Atlantic Ocean.

The storm already has dumped some 25 centimeters of rain along the Florida-Georgia border, with some towns receiving more than 66 centimeters of rain in three days.
