Debby's now just a tropical depression

The National Weather Service's 8 p.m. advisory made it official -- Debby has been downgraded from a tropical storm to a tropical depression. 

Even though all tropical storm warnings in the state have been discontinued, tidal flooding is still a possibility through Wednesday.

The news should help Florida Power and Light restore electricity to more than 1,000 customers scattered throughout Manatee County without power.

For those plotting the storm:

Location at 8 p.m.: 29.5N, 83.1W, about 25 miles north of Cedar Key. Maximum sustained winds were 35 mph. It was moving east-northeast at 6 mph.
