Tropical Depression Fay

Rescue teams are evacuating people from 180 homes in a Florida town about 25 miles north of Orlando due to flooding from what was Tropical Storm Fay. Officials say they're using boats to evacuate people from DeBary, where some streets are under four feet of water. Fay made landfall a record four times in Florida before it was downgraded to a tropical depression late Saturday. The storm caused plenty of flooding as it zigzagged across Florida for nearly a week. Waters continued to rise in some places Sunday as President Bush declared four hard-hit counties disaster areas. The storm has been blamed for 13 deaths in the U.S. Its remnants were forecast to dump several inches of rain across Alabama, Mississippi, eastern Louisiana and Tennessee on Sunday and Monday.
