Tropical Storm Debby has dumped nearly 20 inches of rain on Florida’s panhandle in just two days. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center predict the storm could bring another 4-8 inches of rain and possibly tornadoes to north Florida in the coming days. Parts of southeast Georgia might see up to 10 inches of additional rain.

Today, The Salvation Army placed seven canteens on stand-by to serve disaster survivors with food, beverages and emotional care.

The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services teams from Clay, Marion, Alachua and Citrus counties as well as Jacksonville, Tallahassee and North Central Florida Outpost have assembled support for the affected areas.

Conditions are expected to clear up by Friday as Debby moves northeast into the Atlantic.
