Florida (WTVY) -- Five years ago today, a Tropical Storm was making landfall in Florida.

That was Tropical Storm Debby, which made landfall on June 26th, 2012.

The center of Debby hit the big bend area of Florida. Just like this year's Cindy, the 65 mile per hour peak winds weren't the main story, but instead the flooding and tornadoes.

In Wakulla County, over two feet of rain fell because of the storm.

25 tornadoes were confirmed in Florida because of Debby as well.
