Mindy weakens quickly after Florida landfall, could bring heavy rain to parts of Georgia and S.C.

Mindy, now a tropical depression with 35-mph winds, could dump heavy rainfall across southeast Georgia and coastal South Carolina Thursday morning.

The system formed off the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, making landfall at about 9:15 p.m. near St. Vincent Island as a tropical storm with 45-mph winds, forecasters said. It was responsible for blowing a semitruck off the road near Tallahassee.

Mindy was about 80 miles south-southeast of Valdosta, Georgia, and moving northeast at 20 mph early Thursday, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm is expected to bring 2 to 4 inches of rain, but up to 6 inches in pockets of southeast Georgia and coastal South Carolina.
