USA: Atlantic SeaboardSatellite images show Subtropical Storm Andrea off the coast of Florida and Georgia.
Strong winds and waves carved sand from some South Carolina beaches, and gas and power lines were shut off Wednesday as a precaution when water lapped at the base of several homes and condominiums. Only eighteen tropical storms and four hurricanes have been recorded in May since 1851. Subtropical Storm Andrea churned Wednesday about 100 miles southeast of Savannah.
"I don't think it's a good sign," said Ashley Pagan, 24, at the beachside shop where she works. "It's not even hurricane season. That's kind of scary."
