Tropical Depression Debby on Florida Coast, Moves Into Atlantic

Tropical Depression Debby, formerly a tropical storm that threatened Gulf of Mexico oil and gas interests, has become less organized with 35 miles (55 kilometers) per hour winds after reaching the Atlantic coast of north Florida near St. Augustine, the National Hurricane Center said in a 5 a.m. Miami time advisory. The storm, which deluged Florida with heavy rain and flooding, is moving east-northeast at 10 mph away from Florida into the Atlantic, it said.
