The south-eastern coast of the US has been hit by a tropical storm
Holidaymakers in Florida have suffered heavy wind and rain after a tropical storm hit the south-eastern US coast.
Tropical Storm Beryl made landfall along the north-eastern coast of Florida, according to reports from the National Hurricane Centre in Miami.
Officials said Duval and northern St John's counties were hit by the storm.
In a move which reinforces the importance of
travel insurance cover when going on holiday, officials put tropical storm warnings into effect along the entirety of the Georgia coastline.
Weather experts said parts of north-eastern Florida could suffer coastal flooding on the back of the storm's surge and tide, with warnings also set for Georgia and southern South Carolina.
Forecasters warned people could expect to see as many as 12 inches of rain in places as a result of the storm.
The weather system was expected to head north, continuing to drench parts of Florida and Georgia, before heading out to sea.
