(AP) -- Tropical Storm Fay is wrapping up its disastrous slog across Florida by making a record fourth landfall on the Panhandle's coast.

Florida authorities have raised the death toll to 10.

Across the Florida peninsula, communities are cleaning up the damage from torrential rain that flooded homes, destroyed crops and prompted Governor Charlie Crist to ask for a major disaster declaration from the federal government.

At 11 a.m., the center of the storm was located about 100 miles east-southeast of Pensacola and was moving west at about 7 miles per hour, with sustained winds near 45 miles an hour. The storm is expected to keep its strength and remain a tropical storm into tomorrow. Fay is expected to reach the coasts of Mississippi and Alabama by then.
