Tropical Storm Fay

Well Fay has survived her journey over the island nations of the Caribbean, and is on a beeline for Florida.

It will impact the entire state with rain and wind over the next 48 hours, but the brunt will likely be felt along the southwest coast between Ft. Myers and Tampa.

Fay could become a minimal hurricane (cat. 1 or 2) which to those who live in hurricane territory, isn't feared like a major hurricane, but a cat 1 or 2 can still do some serious damage from both wind and water.

So for all the CoCoRaHS observers in the Sunshine State -- the rest of us are sending you our best thoughts and will be anxiously awaiting to see your reports.

Attention Florida observers: Please leave detailed comments! Not only are they interesting to all of us, BUT they provide invaluable information to officials who recap the storm in detail.

But remember safety first!! Don't endanger your life to report to CoCoRaHS!
