    Tropical Storm Fay kills 2 in Carribean, Florida prepares for hurricane

    Gov. Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency after forecasters on Saturday said they believe the storm could grow to a Category 1 hurricane before reaching Florida on Monday.

    Flooding from Tropical Storm Fay killed two people and left two children missing in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, authorities said Saturday as the cyclone spun toward Cuba.

    Florida keys visitors will undergo a mandatory evacuation beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday. Authorities are likely to also evacuate residents living in low-lying areas and mobile homes.

    The Key West International Airport plans to continue operations through Monday morning.

    Despite forecasters' warning that Fay will hit the Florida Keys on Monday, schools officials in Broward and Miami-Dade said they plan to open schools as usual but will be watching the storm closely on Sunday.

    A hurricane watch is in effect for the Cuban provinces of Granma, Santiago de Cuba, Guantánamo, Camaguey, Las Tunas and Holguin on Saturday afternoon.

    Cuban authorities also issued a tropical storm warning for the provinces of Ciego de Avila and Sancti Spiritus.

    Forecasters said the land masses of Cuba have the potential to disrupt the storm's organization, but Fay could regain any lost steam as it tracks over warm water on Sunday.

    Fay is expected to jog across the island nation's southern coastline all day Sunday and into Monday -- packing 45 mph winds and stronger gusts.

    Sunday will be an important day to watch the storm's development, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in West Miami-Dade County.

    If Fay moves on a northwest path over Cuba, the land could inhibit any strengthening. But if it continues moving west and remains over the warm water just south of Cuba, forecasters say Fay could intensify.

    ''Since the official track implies ample amount of time over water, steady strengthening is forecast,'' senior hurricane specialist Richard Knabb wrote in a Saturday hurricane center advisory.

    The official track -- subject to error -- shows Fay emerging from Cuba Monday morning as a Category 1 hurricane and marching toward the Florida Keys later Monday before continuing along Florida's West Coast.

    Weather conditions across the Florida Keys are likely to begin deteriorating Monday morning, and its center is expected to hit the lower Keys late Monday night with 74 to 95 mph winds.

      I'm hopeful that it comes my way and that our county commissioners are trapped on their roofs. Just so we can fly by and not do a damned thing because they refuse to fund the purchase of a more capable helicopter.

          Lol same thing I thought... We've gone through much worse before. I'm just worried about a tree falling on a car & the power going out. I don't worry too much about a Cat 1.

            I'm not worried either, I just don't want to be at Publix in the last minute, or filling up the car w/ those loooooong line at the gas stations...

                  Too bad that our Emergency Services won't be able to do much thanks to Crist and his little Amend. 1 diaster.... Forget the hurrincane... Amend 1 is the real diaster.
                  The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

                    I just hope it does not make the academy close down so i don't have to makeup a day on a saterday. The storm is not goin to really hurt our area but they said the acadmey is used as an LE family shelter for hurricanes.

                      Funny, they always had money to fund this and that but when they made tax cuts, those little funding things went away.. all those little projects.

                        Crist was right when he said it should not affect public safety. The local governments chose to cut public safety to keep their stupid social programs going!
