TRMM image of storm Andrea

The first storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Tropical Storm Andrea started on the late afternoon of June 5th, 2013 with a low pressure and continued throughout the whole week over the southeast of Gulf of Mexico. The storm had weakened considerably but it is still packed enough to effect Florida's Gulf coast and still carries very heavy rains causing flooding.
