IAMI — Heavy rain poured down on much of Florida Thursday as the first tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season headed toward the state’s western coast, while a new tropical storm warning was issued for a swath of the U.S. East Coast.

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for a large section of Florida’s west coast from Boca Grande to Indian Pass and for the East Coast from Flagler Beach, Fla., all the way to Cape Charles Light in Virginia.

Tropical Storm Andrea’s maximum sustained winds increased to near 60 mph (95 kph) and the storm was expected to make landfall in Florida’s Big Bend area Thursday afternoon before moving across southeastern Georgia and the Carolinas. It was not expected to strengthen into a hurricane.

“This one fortunately is a fast-moving storm,” said Florida Gov. Rick Scott. Slower-moving storms can pose a greater flood risk because they have more time to linger and dump rain.
