MIAMI (CBS4) ― Florida Governor Charlie Crist has declared a state of emergency for Florida as Tropical Storm Fay continues to move in the general direction of the state. Officials in Monroe County say they will likely order a tourist evacuation of the Keys Sunday, and Fay is now officially a killer storm, with at least one woman killed by flooding in the Dominican Republic. Forecasters are saying Floridians should prepare for a hurricane, and some forecasts have Fay becoming a hurricane while over Cuba.

Watches and warnings have been issued for parts of Cuba, Haiti, and all the way into the Central Bahamas. The storm has weakened slightly, but its current position above the warmer waters south of Cuba is expected to help the storm strengthen in the next couple of days.
