Tropical Storm Elsa made landfall in Florida yesterday Wednesday 7th of 2001, knocking out power to over 25,000 people. The hurricane is now en route to Georgia and the Carolinas before slowly making its way along the mid-Atlantic coast. Within the following two days, the storm is expected to travel from Georgia all the way to Maine as a tropical storm or maybe a tropical depression, according to forecasters. The storm’s route, however, remains uncertain and may change as tropical storm Elsa moves up the coast.
As Tropical Storm Elsa moved north across the southeast, it wreaked devastation near the Georgia-Florida line, killing one person and injuring several others. A tree had fallen on two automobiles who were making a commute in Jacksonville, Florida. Unfortunately, one person was killed. A tornado also made its way through Jacksonville on Wednesday evening.
A tornado struck Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, some 40 miles just north of Jacksonville. This, unfortunately, caused several injuries and property damage. The tornado hit around 6:00 p.m. ET. Those that were injured were transferred to local hospitals. No damage occurred to any important military submarines as well as assets. According to a CNN meteorologist, the tornadoes that made landfall were created on the eastern section of Tropical Storm Elsa.
