Erika’s projected path now closer to Tampa; state of emergency declared
Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in anticipation of Tropical Storm Erika, now forecast to weaken but head through South Florida early next week with the potential for heavy rain in the Tampa area.
The storm could bring strong winds and heavy rains to flood-ravaged Pasco County, and officials warn residents in low-lying areas, mobile homes, and those still dealing with flooding to monitor weather reports this weekend.
