MIAMI -- Tropical Storm Beryl is making landfall in northeastern Florida, bringing heavy rains and strong winds to the southeastern U.S. coast.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami reported late Sunday that Beryl was making landfall along the northeastern coast of Florida, over Duval and northern St. John's counties.
Tropical storm warnings were in effect for the entire Georgia coastline, as well as parts of Florida and South Carolina.
Beryl is expected to bring 4 to 8 inches of rain to parts, with some areas getting as much as 12 inches. Forecasters predict the storm surge and tide will cause some coastal flooding in northeastern Florida, Georgia and southern South Carolina.
The weather system is expected to continue dumping rain over parts of Florida and Georgia on Monday before heading north and then out to sea. It is expected to weaken to a tropical depression by Monday night.
