Harvey

The moisture from Tropical Storm Harvey has already produced flash flooding near Pensacola, and more heavy rain is possible across north Florida through Friday.

Thousands reacted this week to a photo of residents sitting waist-deep in floodwaters at an assisted living facility in Dickinson, Texas. The town did not issue a mandatory evacuation order ahead of Tropical Storm Harvey. The photo, and Texas officials' decisions to not evacuate, could have ramifications for emergency plans for Florida’s elderly residents.

Hurricane Harvey won’t send heavy rains and winds to Florida, but it will likely push gas prices higher.

Harvey regained tropical storm strength as it drifted in the Gulf of Mexico toward Texas early Thursday and forecasters said it could become a hurricane.
