Tropical Storm Debby could dump another foot of rain over Florida

Already deluged by a stubborn cyclone that wouldn't move, northern Florida could get another 6 to 12 inches of rain over the next two days as Tropical Storm Debby hovers in the northern Gulf of Mexico.

The storm could also produce more tornadoes across Florida on Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center said.

As of late Monday night, Debby was centered about 35 miles south of Apalachicola, Florida, the weather agency said. The sprawling storm was creeping northeast at 2 mph, packing maximum sustained winds of 45 mph along the way.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for the Gulf coast of Florida from Mexico Beach to Englewood.

Debby has stalled multiple times in the Gulf of Mexico, dumping up to 5 inches of rain per hour on parts of the Florida Panhandle.

    Like I've said before: Florida needs to sink deeper into the ocean for this to work properly.
