Tropical Storm Beryl made landfall early Monday in northeast Florida, near the Georgia border, weakened and was downgraded to a tropical depression, the National Hurricane Center, or NHC, said.

The storm's center was located about 100 kilometers (62 miles) west-northwest of Jacksonville, Florida, and some 65 kilometers (about 40 miles) east-southeast of Valdosta, Georgia, at 11:00 a.m., the NHC said.

Beryl, the second tropical storm of the season, has maximum sustained winds of 55 kph (35 mph) and is moving west-northwest at 9 kph (6 mph).

The NHC has discontinued all coastal tropical storm warnings and watches.

The storm is expected to turn to the north later in the day on Monday, with a slow turn to the northeast forecast for Tuesday.

The tropical depression is expected to move over northern Florida and southeastern Georgia on Monday and Tuesday, the NHC said. EFE
