SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Former Tropical Storm Beryl has become a depression with winds dying down.

Still, it is soaking parts of the Southeast and ruined holiday plans along the Georgia and Florida coasts.

Late Monday morning, sustained winds had died down to 35 mph (55 kph).

Mostly, the storm is bringing much-needed rain to an area parched with drought.
