Tropical storm Debby brought torrential rain to Florida Monday. Debby has been slow moving, making flooding a bigger threat than wind. Residents in low-lying areas around the crook of Florida's elbow are being urged to evacuate. The storm is fairly stationary, and its center is far off the coast in the Gulf of Mexico, but even so, it has managed to spawn isolated tornadoes that have left at least one person dead.
