Tropical Storm Arlene is making its way through the Gulf of Mexico, bringing heavy rains and strong winds. According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), the system was just strong enough to be named a tropical storm.
Arlene has been swirling in the Gulf for a few days, and its path has been closely monitored by meteorologists. As of now, the storm is moving away from Florida, but it is still bringing rain and high winds to the state.
The NHC warns that Arlene could cause power outages and flooding in some areas, and residents are advised to stay alert and prepared.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression #2 is also expected to bring rain to Florida. The depression is currently brewing in the Atlantic, and could strengthen into a tropical storm in the coming days.
This dual threat of severe weather has put emergency services on high alert in Florida, and officials are urging residents to take precautions. Stay tuned for further updates on both Arlene and Tropical Depression #2.
