SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Drenching rains from Tropical Storm Beryl are bringing a soggy Memorial Day to the southeastern U.S. coast, though one Georgia official said he expects the rainfall to be largely beneficial.
Ray Parker is the emergency management chief for McIntosh County on the Georgia coast. He said Monday that the 1 to 2 inches of rain that fell in his area overnight had been absorbed like it "fell on an empty sponge."
Parker said his county south of Savannah saw minimal damage as Beryl came ashore in northern Florida early Monday. Most came from scattered power outages caused by falling tree limbs. He said two homes had trees fall on them.
Beryl was forecast to weaken as it hovered near the Georgia-Florida line.
