Hurricane Erin hits Florida, downgraded to tropical storm
VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Haid-ly the pugilist Andrew was, Hurricane Erin picked a fight with coastal central Florida early today, then backed off as it butted up against land. Before dawn broke. Erin had become a tropical storm.
Four hours after blasting its way into this resort city with IOO mph wind gusts, the National Hurricane Center said Enn’s sustained winds had slowed to 70 mph near Kissimee at 5 a.m. The minimum wind to be classified as a humcane is 74 mph.
“Knock on wood, I think this has gone relatively well,” Indian River County spokesman Ron Kramer said.
About 70 miles of coastline north of Palm Beach was battered by earlier sustained winds of 85 mph and sheets of rain. Hundreds of thousands of people were driven inland.
As Erin struck Vero Beach — spring training home of the Los Angeles Dodgers — it ripped palm fronds from their bases and knocked out power in much of the area. Erin then lost its punch as it moved west at about 17
“A hurricane is basically a heat engine, and it gets its source of energy from the ocean,” said hurricane specialist Max Mayfield. “When it moves over land, it loses its source and weakens, and that’s exactly what’s happening.”
There were no immediate reports of injuries in Florida.
“The last time I went out, actually it was nice, in an eerie sort of way,” Kramer said after taking a predawn look outside his .leadquarters as the storm’s eye passed overhead.
Damage reports were not expected until after sunrise, Kramer said.
The hurricane center suspended all hurricane warnings when it downgraded the storm.
However, tropical storm warnings were in effect on Florida’s east coast from Fernandina Beach south to just north of Jupiter Inlet, and for Lake Okeechobee.
A tropical storm watch was in effect from Appalachicola to Pensacola, where the storm was expected to head

after it emerges from Florida’s Gulf Coast by early afternoon.
The eye wall of Hurricane Erin made land at 1:11 a.m. just south of Vero Beach.
Barry Sesack, principal of Glendale Elementary School which was serving as a shelter, peered in wonder out the windows of his office as the eye was passing over.
“It’s really coming down now,” he said, sounding a little excited. “It’s coming sideways, right across, in a horizontal position!”
“It’s unreal!” a sopping wet Marv Thiel, 36, of Kaukauna, Wis., said,
standing in the darkened hallway of a hotel. “Spectacular.”
Erin ripped boats from their moorings and caused extensive damage to orchards of bananas, avocados, mangoes and watermelons in the Bahamas. Elsewhere Tuesday, heavy tropical rains were blamed for a plane crash in Jamaica that killed five people.
In Florida, supermarkets and gas stations were jammed with residents and tourists caught by surprise at Erin’s northerly path, replaying the scenes of panicked preparation that took place a day earlier in Miami.
Erin moved farther north than was
earlier expected, and late Tuesday authorities lifted an evacuation warning for 400,000 people in Dade County, which includes Miami and Homestead.
Some got caught in Erin’s switch.
“When we left, they said it was going to hit Miami,” said Paul Lazeau, one of three charter boat captains who thought they were beating Hurricane Erin by heading north from Palm Beach County. “We got here and they said it looks like it’s going to be Fort Pierce.”
Erin’s arrival in central Florida took many by surprise, and many left without preparing their homes for the storm.
