(MIAMI) — South Florida prepares for the remnants of Tropical Storm Erika.

After Tropical Storm Erika dissipated over Cuba Saturdy morning, South Floridians prepared for the leftover heavy rain, flooding, and winds.

Florida Governor Rick Scott told residents they should stay alert, after declaring a state of emergency on Friday, and he said there’s a possibility the storm could regain strength as it makes its way into the Gulf of Mexico.

“If you look at history, these storms, we still get a lot of rain,” said the governor. “The Tampa area in particular is still saturated; so we still have some risk.”
