Tropical Storm Fay developed late Thursday afternoon off the coast of North Carolina with winds of 45 mph.

Tropical Storm Warnings, and Flash Flood Warnings and Watches and Flood Advisories were issued across the tri-state region as Fay brought torrential downpours and gusty winds to the area.

Along the coast, Fay caused heavy surf, creating some beach erosion along coastal sections. The risk for dangerous rip currents remains high early Saturday and swimming is not advised.

Fay's strong winds downed trees across the area and the heavy rain resulted in flooding in some areas as well.
