Erika has dissipated

Important Links

The remnants of what was Tropical Storm Erika are just south of southern Florida.  The trough of low pressure is moving W/NW at about 20-25 MPH.  That motion is expected to continue for the next 24 hours.  Southern and Central Florida will likely get heavy rainfall today and Monday.  Rainfall amounts could top four inches.

There is a 20% chance of re-development of the system in the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the next two days.  The impacts are expected to stay mostly the east of our viewing area for the duration, but we will continue to closely monitor the situation.

HEALTH:  New concerns on the spread of MERS story image
There are new concerns  about "Middle East Respiratory Syndrome"  - or MERS.
Scientist say the deadly virus could be transmitted through the air not just through close physical contact.
   
Scientists in Saudi Arabia collected air samples from a camel barn that tested positive for MERS.
   
They had previously found MERS in a camel from the same barn as well as from the owner who later died.
   
The virus from the air sample was identical to the virus found in nasal samples from the infected camel and its owner.
