TS Debby to Cross Northern Florida

HAVANA TIMES — Tropical Storm Debby has changed course several times while churning slowly. First it was supposedly headed west, then north and now east for a probable landing in the coming days somewhere on the northwestern Florida peninsula.

At six a.m. Cuban time (EDT) the center of Debby was located at 135 kilometers (85 miles) west of Cayo Cedar, Florida. It packs 75 kph (45 mph) winds and has a minimum pressure of 991 millibars.

After remaining stationary it is now moving west at 5 kph (3 mph).

Cuban forecasters said that the storm could gain some in intensity and organization before a landing and possible crossing, as a degraded tropical depression, the north of the Florida peninsula.

TS Debby does not pose a threat to Cuba.
