Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Friday for every county in Florida in preparation for Tropical Storm Erika.

A big change for Florida Friday morning has it going more west, up the center of the state Monday through Wednesday, and remaining a tropical storm, not becoming a hurricane. 

Erika is still struggling Friday morning but is still a tropical storm.  The storm has to deal with wind shear and the mountains of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola on Friday.

If Erika makes it through this terrain, then it will have a lot less resistance when heading toward the Bahamas and South Florida.
