    Tammy is the 19th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, which began June 1 and ends Nov. 30.

    This season is tied for second-busiest on record since record-keeping started in 1851. The record for tropical storms and hurricanes in one year is 21, set in 1933.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Tropical Storm Tammy formed just off Florida's east coast Wednesday and could bring tornadoes, heavy rains and coastal erosion to northern Florida and parts of Georgia and the Carolinas. Tammy, with winds of 40 mph, was centered about 40 miles north-northeast of Cape Canaveral and 130 miles southeast of Jacksonville at 11 a.m. and was moving to the north at 14 mph. It is expected to parallel the coast and gradually slow its forward motion.

    reporting in from St Augustine Beach, FL (south of Jax)... It's been very windy the past few days with heavy rainfall and fog. We had a bit of water in oceanfront condo overnight due to strong wind gusts, driving rains and local flooding. The surf is choppy with huge swells and dangerous riptides. Saw a few daring surfers in the water but it was a hard paddle out for them and bad conditions returned them to shore. Last night we had wind gusts ~50mph. I think the worst is behind us... *fingers crossed*

    Thanx JBean and Buzzm1...just as conditions were improving in St Augustine where weather is concerned, we find ourselves back home in PA where it seems the remnants of Tammy have followed us here... cold, damp and no sunshine! Looks like all next week are to be beautiful in St Johns county and at the beaches... :bang:
