Debby weakens to tropical depression

Driving through some parts of Florida is no longer an option.

Instead you'll have to get around by boat. Heavy rain from what was once Tropical Storm Debby has turned roads into rivers.

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for some areas. Tuesday crews with the Conservation Commission went through flooded neighborhoods knocking on doors, looking for people trapped in their homes.

Florida's governor says there's even more to come.

“We're going to have a lot more rain, we've got flooding, we've got downed power lines and we have about 30,000 customers without power,” said Gov. Rick Scott.

The National Hurricane Center shows Debby made landfall Tuesday afternoon on Florida’s Gulf Coast.

It weakened to a tropical depression just a few hours later.
