Tropical Storm Fay Hugs Florida's Atlantic Coast

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Tropical Storm Fay meandered north along the Florida Atlantic coast today but did not immediately head out over the ocean, lessening the chances it will gain strength and become a hurricane.

Northern Florida and much of Georgia are expecting a long drenching, which some farmers hope will boost crops hurt by a lingering drought.

The storm was near Cape Canaveral at 11 a.m. Its maximum sustained winds were back up to about 50 mph and it was moving north at about 3 mph.

A hurricane watch was discontinued for parts of north Florida and Georgia, but a tropical storm warning was extended, covering an area from Fort Pierce to Altamaha Sound in Georgia.
