Tropical Storm Elsa: Watch the storm approach the Gulf Coast of Florida
Tropical storm Elsa has made landfall on the Gulf Coast of Florida this morning and shows little sign of slowing down despite its demotion from a hurricane to a tropical storm. According to meteorologists, the storm’s core was eroded away by dry air and wind shear after making landfall on the Gulf Coast of Florida, but high winds and heavy rain are still expected.
Currently, heavy rains and winds are battering parts of the Florida peninsula after its landfall on the Gulf Coast of Florida, the storm continuing to creep up the East Coast and drenching more and more of the state. Forecasts have been somewhat inconclusive as the storm is still active but it’s safe to say that it’s going to get crazy out there if the storms along the Gulf Coast of Florida are anything to go by.
Naturally, Twitter is keeping everyone up to date on the storm’s progress while also trying to find the humor in the situation. We stormed through the threads to find the best reactions to Tropical Storm Elsa as it moves up the Gulf Coast of Florida.

This storm is definitely getting its second wind, be careful!
I'm in the area of St Pete Beach/ Gulfport FL still getting the wind & rain. I'm in my lania and the wind bands still shaking the screens. I always say it sounds like a Monster breathing trying to get in! pic.twitter.com/sKYHAl0Lnk

Let me in
Yikes, that’s definitely creepy!
Be very careful of the toxins swooshing around on the streets during and after all the torrential rain.
Hillsborough County, FL has:
•10 superfund sites
•51 golf courses (that use toxic chlorpyrifos)
•3,000 small farms (using glyphosate)
