Tropical Storm Idalia made landfall in Florida on Sunday, bringing heavy rain and strong winds. The storm then moved up the coast, causing flooding and power outages in the Carolinas. At least two people have been killed in the storm.
Idalia is the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. It is expected to weaken as it moves further north, but it could still cause flooding and power outages in other parts of the country.
The storm has already caused significant damage in Florida. In the city of Miami, several cars were submerged in floodwaters, and several homes were damaged. In the Carolinas, power outages have affected thousands of people.
Idalia is a reminder of the potential dangers of tropical storms. Residents in coastal areas should be prepared for flooding and power outages, and they should follow the advice of local officials.
