Tropical Storm Elsa wreaked havoc around Florida and southeast Georgia this week, leaving at least one person dead and several others injured.
In southeast Georgia, the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay reported that at approximately 5:50 p.m. Wednesday a tornado touched down on the base leaving RVs tipped over and downed trees in its wake.
The base said there are reports of multiple injuries and damage to multiple RVs in the base's camper park, as well as reports of damage to buildings and structures in the area. The injured were transported to local hospitals for treatment.
"While the situation here is still very dynamic, I want to thank all of our first responders and Camden County first responders for their quick actions," Capt. Chester Parks, Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay commanding officer said in a statement. "Their quick response most certainly helped."
The National Hurricane Center reports Elsa is expected to move through southeastern Georgia and into South Carolina through Thursday night, bringing heavy rainfall and a risk of flooding.
Through the end of the week, heavy rainfall is expected through North Carolina and into New England, leading to possible isolated flash flooding. Tropical storm conditions are possible in southern New England and New York by Friday.
