The hurricane season is in full effect as tropical storm Beryl hits Florida at 45 miles per hour, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend celebrations. Beryl is on a path that will have her crossing three states in the south.
Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia were under tropical storm warning alerts. The tropical storm brought much needed rainfall to parts that were in a drought. It also knocked out power to tens of thousand of people in that region. In Georgia it was reported that twenty nine hundred people were without power, in Jacksonville there were downed trees, flooded areas as well as power outages and public transportation needed to be suspended due to the flooding and fallen trees.
The Sunday Jazz festival and memorial day celebrations in Jacksonville were cancelled. Beryl is on her way back out to the Atlantic Ocean as of Monday morning and it is a relief that no major damage was reportedly done.
