At 11 p-m Eastern time, Dennis' center was located in Marengo County, Alabama. It's packing top sustained winds of 50 miles-an-hour. Dennis is expected to weaken to a tropical depression by Monday.

Dennis blasted ashore along the Florida Panhandle and Alabama coast Sunday with 120-mile-an-hour winds. On the plus side, it proved to be a compact, fast-paced storm that did a lot less damage than it could have. There have been no U.S. deaths blamed on the
storm.

The biggest problem is power outages, which have affected about a quarter million homes and businesses in the Panhandle, and another quarter million in Alabama. President Bush has declared parts of Florida a major federal disaster along with coastal Alabama and Mississippi.
