The Storm:

Debby has dropped up to two feet of rain in some parts of north Florida and southeast Georgia promises to bring more of the same Tuesday as it moves slowly on a path forecast to take it over the state and into the Atlantic Ocean by Thursday.

"In all my years I've lived in Baker County all my life and I don’t believe I've ever seen the rain come down like this," Baker County Sheriff Joey Dobson said. "I don't think I've ever seen I-10 closed, at least for water anyway."

Just west in Columbia County, emergency management officials say numerous roads are closed and ask people to stay off the road if possible. Florida Gateway College closed Tuesday because its entrance road is flooded.

The National Hurricane Center said Debby was about 65 miles west-northwest of Cedar Key and moving east at near 6 mph. It had maximum sustained winds near 40 mph.
