STEINHATCHEE, Fla. -- Forecasters say Tropical Storm Fay has crossed into the Gulf of Mexico, but may not be done with Florida yet.
The storm could make a fourth landfall in the state Saturday over the panhandle.
The projected path would have it leaving the state for good later in the weekend.
Fay is expected to keep its strength tomorrow and then slowly weaken Sunday. Sustained winds are currently around 50 miles-per-hour.
One resident of the northern Gulf Coast says she's bracing for a possible drenching from the slow-moving storm.
Meanwhile, flood waters are beginning to recede, sometimes leaving a layer of muck and mud.
Tens of thousands of people are still without electricity. And residents of Florida's storm-stricken Atlantic coast face a weekend of cleanup after chest-high flooding.
Six deaths are being blamed directly on the storm in Florida.
Several Panhandle counties have opened their emergency operations in preparation for the storm.
