Anyone know anybody in the area the storm came through. I always feel alwful for those people that get hit hard in Florida. I know quite a few people in Florida but think they are out of harms way.

My parents live in Miami and my sister in Gainesville, FL. Miami didn't get much more than lots of rain and a little wind. They didn't have it too bad in that area, but I heard that the storm spawned some tornados farther up the coast and a kitesurfer got the ride of his life on Ft. Lauderdale Beach (broken link). It is not uncommon for TS's and hurricanes to spawn lots of tornados within the storm. Unfortunately, we found this out the hard way during Andrew (16 year anniversary is coming up this Sunday).

So far Fay is mostly a rainmaker, which obviously causes its own brand of problems. It seems that there are some areas that are having a lot of flooding, and that is the main source of damage and problems so far.

I'm in Atlanta and we have wind and overcast skies. There is a prediction of 'some' rain later in the weekend.

If it is raining sideways in Jacksonville then rain should reach Atlanta during the night.
