Episode Narrative Tropical Storm Fay, which came ashore just northeast of Apalachicola, Florida during the early morning of the 23rd, slowly weakened as it moved west-northwest across the Florida Panhandle during the day. Its rainbands generated very heavy rainfall and peak wind gusts over 40 mph throughout southeast Alabama. Rainfall amounts from Fay during the 48-hour period ending at midnight on the 25th ranged from three to eight inches. A peak wind gust of 41 knots was measured at Napier Field in Dale County, Alabama on the 23rd. That same day, the lowest sea-level pressure recorded was 999.7 mb at Ozark, Alabama. There were numerous reports of downed trees and limbs, with several falling across power lines and county roads. An estimated 13,000 residents were without power. The Choctawhatchee and Pea rivers rose to just below their respective flood stages.
Event Narrative There were scattered reports of downed trees and power lines throughout the county. Fourteen county roads were closed due to fallen trees.
