ST. GEORGE ISLAND, Fla. (AP) -- Tropical Storm Debby has made landfall on the northwest coast of Florida.

The National Hurricane Center said Tuesday afternoon that Debby made landfall near Steinhatchee with top winds of 40 mph.

Debby is expected to weaken to a tropical depression Tuesday night.

Debby has drenched Florida for four straight days and forecasters warn that even though the storm is weakening, the threat of flooding remains.

The deluge has spoiled vacations for many visitors.
