Tropical Storm Fay came off the US Southeastern coast as a strong low pressure area that originally formed over a week ago in the Gulf of Mexico. This storm will be moving up the US east coast relatively quickly and has the potential to bring flash flooding, gusty winds, power outages, rip currents, high waves and beach erosion over the next few days. Persons along the east coast of the US and New England should be monitoring this storm carefully.
