Tropical storm Debby continues to hit Florida today and is creeping slowly towards the coast. There has been severe flooding, widespread power outages and reports of tornadoes as the storm pummeled the coast over the weekend.
Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a statewide emergency yesterday and tells Soledad O'Brien on CNN's “Starting Point” that forecasters explain the rain from the storm to continue for the next two to three days.
“We’re working hard at this making sure Floridians are prepared, making sure they’re very cautious when they’re going outside,” Scott says.
