Beryl Still Soaking Georgia

What’s left of Tropical Depression Beryl continues to soak southeast Georgia after ruining Memorial Day plans along the Georgia and Florida coasts Monday.

The National Hurricane Center’s 5 a.m. advisory centered Beryl about 10 miles northwest of Valdosta, with winds at 30 miles-an-hour winds and a few higher gusts. The storm is inching north at 2 miles per hour, but forecasters said it will turn northeast and pick up speed later Tuesday.

Beryl is not expected to strengthen for the remainder of Tuesday but could intensify a bit as it moves toward the South Carolina coastline Wednesday.

Mostly, the storm is bringing much-needed rain to an area parched with drought.
