Florida is gearing up Saturday as Tropical Storm Fay heads towards the coast. It is expected that the storm will become a hurricane by Monday hitting the Florida Keys.
Charlie Crist, Florida's governor has already declared a state of emergency for Florida stating that the storm "threatens the state of Florida with a major disaster."
Fay has the potential to be at a Category 1 or 2 hurricane by the time it reaches the southern state. Winds could be stronger than 100 mph according to the National Hurricane Center.
Two people are already dead from the storm in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Two children have also been reported missing in the area.
The storm's eye is about 60 miles south of Guantanamo, Cuba. Sustained winds have been measured at 40 mph.
It is predicted that on Tuesday evening the storm will have reached landfall along the western coast of Florida as a hurricane.
