Storm-Weary Florida Looking at Another Storm on the Way

Storm-weary Floridians are keeping an eye on Hurricane Dennis as it moved through the Caribbean Wednesday.

Forecasters say Dennis could be near the Florida Keys as a Category Three storm by late Friday, and could eventually end up near the Panhandle where Hurricane Ivan struck with devastating effects last summer.

The storm has top sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.

Forecasters can't say with any certainty where or if Dennis will hit Florida because it is still more than 700 miles southeast of Miami, but they cautioned people to make sure they had hurricane plans ready.

Florida's Panhandle took a glancing hit from Tropical Storm Cindy Wednesday morning, but it only brought rain and winds of about 30 miles-per-hour in Pensacola.

Tropical Storm Arlene also caused little damage when it hit the Panhandle during this hurricane season.
