Tropical Depression 10 made landfall near Fort Walton Beach, FL around 8 PM EDT Friday evening. Strengthening to a tropical storm is no longer anticipated since it moved ashore faster than predicted.

It will continue to bring on and off showers and squalls in our direction tonight. Some of the winds with this will exceed 30 miles per hour and there have been reports along the coast of waters rising above the seawalls earlier Friday. High tides are expected again very early Saturday morning, but the depression should continue to weaken and move away from us.

Rainfall amounts could end up being impressive in some locations, especially along the coast near Franklin and Wakulla Counties, and points west. Inland areas can also expect decent showers and storms throughout the day, with a gradual tapering off of the activity by tonight and for the weekend.

Isolated tornadoes are also possible in some of the spiral rainbands in any part of our viewing area this evening.

    What would the NAACP say if it was six white kids that beat up a black kid.

    A tornado passed through Lafayeete County at approx. 11:45 pm last night. There was no structural damage, but there were a lot of trees down and electricity was out. I don't know if it actually touched the ground. There were no watches or warnings for Lafayette County that we were aware of, no mention on the 11:00 pm weather report, only Franklin County and Marion County. I wanted to know if the National Weather Service detected this tornado and if you were aware that it had occured.
