MIAMI - The National Hurricane Center is changing the tropical storm warning area along the Gulf coast as Debby meanders near Florida.

Debby is drenching the state with rain and has caused flooding.

The tropical storm warning area shifted farther south Monday to encompass much of Florida's Gulf coast. Debby has weakened slightly and now has top sustained winds of 45 mph (72 kph).

The storm is about 75 miles (121 kilometers) south of Apalachicola and is moving northeast at 3 mph (5 kph).

An isolated tornado from the storm killed one person and authorities are continuing to look for another person who disappeared in the surf in Alabama.
