Ain’t no sunshine till Beryl’s gone: Tropical Storm Beryl is set to drench parts of Florida and Georgia for Memorial Day as the storm makes landfall this afternoon and tonight.
National Weather Service forecasters predicted Sunday that winds could reach up to 65 mph.
“Gusts to hurricane force are possible over portions of northeastern Florida and southeastern Georgia tonight,” the weather service said Sunday.
The weather service also expects three to six inches of rain to accumulate from northern Florida to southeastern North Carolina.
The storm has been a damper for vacation life along the Southeast coast, but many visiting families are sticking tight to their travel plans.
"So far it's kind of business as usual,” Joe Murphy, a spokesman for the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island in northern Florida, told the Associated Press. He said he was not seeing a lot of people checking out or trying to get off the island.
