Tropical Storm Beryl Leaves Many Without Power on Memorial Day Weekend

Tropical Storm Beryl

While many Americans were enjoying the leisurely activities associated with Memorial Day weekend, there were thousands in Florida and Georgia who experienced the harshness of Tropical Storm Beryl.

As close-to-hurricane-force winds ravaged through the Jacksonville Beach area around midnight on Monday, Mayor Alvin Browne issued warnings for the citizens to stay inside. Seventy-mph gusts were making it nearly impossible for anyone in the area to remain outside for too long.

Though these conditions reportedly died down on Memorial Day morning, heavy rains pelted the area as the storm continued its move up to Georgia. While no serious injuries were reported, Beryl left trees uprooted and many people without power.

Despite the emergence of the storm, there were still those who braved the weather and continued with Memorial Day’s traditional graveside visiting, though those who chose to do so were drenched.
