Beryl weakens, dumping rain over Florida and Georgia

•, By David Beasley
 Tropical Storm Beryl weakened over northern Florida early Monday, dumping heavy rain and knocking out power while disrupting Memorial Day plans for travelers and beachgoers. 

The second named storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season unleashed tropical storm conditions along the coast in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.


City officials in Jacksonville canceled Memorial Day ceremonies scheduled for Monday and closed some local parks as the storm drew closer. "I am encouraging all area residents to stay indoors and off the streets," said Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown.


A Memorial Day event at Veteran's Cemetery in nearby St. Augustine also was also canceled, local media reported.
