This National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) GOES East Satellite image released June 7, 2013 shows Tropical Storm Andrea. Tropical storm Andrea dumped heavy rains on Florida Thursday and threatened to bring high winds and rough seas to much of the US East Coast after earlier tearing across western Cuba. At around 2140 GMT the first named storm of the Atlantic season made landfall in Dixie County, Florida, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of Steinhatchee, according to the Miami-based US National Hurricane Center. The storm -- which packed maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour and was moving to the northeast at 17 miles per hour -- could whip up tornadoes in central and southern Florida, the NHC said.

This National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) image taken by GOES East Satellite on June 6, 2013 shows Tropical Andrea. Tropical Storm Andrea, the first of the Atlantic storm season, formed in the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday and was expected to become a hurricane within 48 hours, the US National Hurricane Center said. "This system has a high chance -- near 100 percent -- of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours," the Miami-based NHC warned, with the storm forecast to hit the US state of Florida. The storm earlier produced driving rains in Cuba's westernmost Pinar del Rio province and led authorities to evacuate more than 1,000 people from low-lying areas.The Atlantic hurricane season started June 1 and runs through November 30.
