Hurricane Don, the first hurricane of the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season, has weakened to a tropical storm as it moves inland over the southeastern United States. Don made landfall in Florida on Sunday as a Category 1 hurricane, but has since weakened as it moves north. The storm is expected to bring heavy rain and flooding to parts of the Southeast.

As of 11:00 AM EST on Monday, July 24, Don was located about 585 miles east of Cape Race, Newfoundland, with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. The storm is moving east-northeast at 20 mph.

Don is expected to continue to weaken as it moves northeast over the Atlantic Ocean. The storm is forecast to lose tropical storm status on Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is warning of heavy rain and flooding in parts of the Southeast. The heaviest rain is expected in Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas.

The NHC is also warning of dangerous rip currents along the Atlantic coast.

Residents in the affected areas should be prepared for heavy rain, flooding, and dangerous rip currents. They should also monitor the latest forecast updates from the NHC.
