Tropical Storm Idalia Descends on North Carolina

Tropical Storm Idalia has left a trail of flooding and destruction throughout the Southeast, with at least one death reported.

The storm made landfall in Florida as a hurricane on Wednesday morning, bringing powerful winds and heavy rain to the state. It then weakened to a tropical storm as it moved through Georgia and South Carolina, but still caused significant damage.

In Florida, the storm knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of customers and caused widespread flooding. In some areas, streets were turned into rivers and cars were submerged.

One person was killed in a weather-related crash in Florida.

In Georgia, the storm brought high winds and heavy rain, causing power outages and flooding. One person was killed in a tree fall in Valdosta.

In South Carolina, the storm also brought high winds and heavy rain, causing flooding and power outages.

The storm is expected to continue to weaken as it moves out to sea, but it could still cause some additional flooding and power outages.

Officials are urging residents to stay safe and to be aware of the potential for flooding and power outages.
