Storm Claudette lashes Florida



Claudette wreaked havoc in Florida resorts as tropical storm Bill was re-classed as a hurricane by the US National Hurricane Centre in Miami.

Emergency response teams were activated in the Florida Panhandle as the region braced for possible flooding. “The main threat from tropical storm Claudette is heavy downpours and isolated tornadoes on Monday night in the Florida Panhandle and Big Bend counties,” the Florida Division of Emergency Management warned. Up to 25 centimetres of rain is expected to fall in some parts because of the storm.
