Tropical Storm Fay expected to hit Fla. 3rd time

Florida, USA
This NOAA satellite image taken Thursday, Aug. 21, 2008 at 1:45 a.m. EDT shows Tropical Storm Fay about 35 miles southeast of Daytona Beach Florida. Very heavy rains are continuing along the east coast of central Florida.

- Tropical Storm Fay hung offshore Thursday and poured more rain on Florida's central Atlantic coast after flooding hundreds of homes, trapping residents and leaving much of Florida a soggy mess.

Alligators, snakes and other wildlife were spotted in some flooded neighborhoods after high water drove the animals from their normal lairs.

Forecasters expected the storm to continue a zigzag course by hitting the state for a third time in a week, along with Georgia, but didn't think it would strengthen to a hurricane over the Atlantic.
