* portions of Florida and Georgia... including the following
areas... in Florida... coastal Dixie... coastal Franklin...
coastal Gulf... coastal Jefferson... coastal Taylor... coastal
Wakulla... Gadsden... inland Dixie... inland Franklin... inland
Gulf... inland Jefferson... inland Taylor... inland Wakulla...

and Thomas.

* Through Friday evening

* periods of heavy rain are likely... especially Thursday afternoon
through early Friday. Widespread rain amounts of 5 to 10 inches
are expected... with isolated amounts up to 15 to 20 inches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Tropical Storm Warning
Issued: 12:57 PM CDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Port Saint Joe
    - Cape San Blas

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 25-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - remain braced against the reasonable threat for strong
          tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life.
          Properties remain subject to significant wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury, or in some
          cases loss of life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous
          wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for up to 1 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: Thursday morning until Friday morning

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for peak
          storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot above ground.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited storm
          surge flooding impacts. Efforts should now be brought to
          completion before conditions deteriorate.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Follow the instructions
          of local officials. Consider voluntary evacuation if
          recommended. Leave immediately if evacuation orders are
          issued.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding, mainly
          along the immediate coast or in low lying areas just
          inland. Higher waves may locally increase area of flooding.
        - Isolated sections of coastal highways and access roads
          flooded, making traveling in these areas dangerous due to
          flood waters.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Large breakers will will erode
          dunes in more vulnerable locations.
        - Minor damage to marinas, docks, and piers. A few small
          craft not secured prior to the storm will break away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 4-8 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - emergency considerations should include a threat of
          flooding.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against flooding rain
          impacts.
        - If flood related watches and warnings are in effect, heed
          recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized heavy rainfall may result in flooding of low
          lying areas, necessitating basic precautions to protect
          vulnerable structures.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will
          rise and approach bankfull levels. Runoff will increase
          water levels in area holding ponds and drainage ditches,
          reducing storage capacity to absorb future rainfall.
        - Isolated flooding in low lying areas will make driving
          difficult. Ponding of water in low lying areas may result
          in brief Road closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - isolated tornadoes are expected, resulting in a notable
          impact to affected communities.
        - Isolated areas affected by tornadoes will experience minor
          damage, including some damage to structures and sporadic
          power and communication outages.
        - A few structures will be damaged by tornadoes, mainly with
          loss of shingles or siding. Some Mobile homes will be
          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.
