Beryl nears hurricane strength
Latest advisory from the National Weather Service says Tropical Storm Beryl is nearly a hurricane. Tropical storm conditions, the National Hurricane Center says, have reached the coast.

But in Jacksonville, the mayor is asking residents to heed storm warnings and stay inside.
