It was moving to the north-northeast at 12 mph. A tropical storm becomes a hurricane when winds reach 74 mph. A hurricane warning is in effect for the Big Bend area of Florida's Gulf Coast.

Tornadoes could spin out of the system as it makes landfall, the weather service warned.

Areas on the western side of the storm could see between 10 and 15 inches of rain while east of it rainfall totals could reach 20 inches, potentially leading to flash flooding.
