MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) -- It seems like Tropical Storm Fay has been trying to drown Florida all week.

For five days now, Fay has been zig-zagging across the state. It's dumped more than two feet of rain in some cities and it's left tens of thousands without power this morning as it slowly moves west across the northern peninsula.

The National Hurricane Center says tornadoes are possible in parts of northeastern Florida, southeastern Georgia and southern South Carolina today.

Schools across northern and central Florida remain closed today, and now several counties in southeast Alabama are closing schools as the storm moves in that direction.

Yesterday the storm recorded the first two U.S. casualties. Two people drowned in the ocean while swimming in the rough waters.
