Tropical Storm Colin moved out to sea early Tuesday after knocking out power to thousands, prompting Florida Governor Rick Scott to declare a state of emergency...

The system may bring 1 to 3 inches (7.6 centimeters) more rain across eastern North Carolina and central Florida through Tuesday...

Scott declared a state of emergency in 34 counties. Franklin County told residents in low-lying areas and in mobile homes they should leave before the storm arrived.

Colin, with top winds of 50 miles (80 kilometers) an hour, was centered about 110 miles northeast of Jacksonville, Florida, moving at 31 mph
