Fay’s Fury Heads North

August 20th, 2008 by flanews

Emergency managers continue to warn Floridians to be cautious as Tropical Storm Fay makes its way up the East Coast. The storm has already spawned 6 tornados. One man was injured earlier this week while trying to kite surf in the 60 mile an hour winds. Governor Charlie Crist is asking Floridians to continue tracking the storm and to keep their hurricane supplies close by. Experts expect Fay to continue north along the coast before heading west across the panhandle later this week. Emergency Management Director Craig Fugate said people living in the panhandle need to keep a close eye on the storm.

If I live up here in the Big Bend area or in North Florida, What Id really be looking for right now would be getting my plan ready, Im monitoring the storm and if the storm comes here what am I doing and what do I need to get ready for, said Fugate.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is connecting one death to the storm. A Highlands County man was killed by carbon monoxide poisoning while testing a generator in his garage.
