Tropical Storm Idalia could bring tropical storm-force winds, storm surge and coastal flooding to parts of the Florida Keys, the National Hurricane Center said. A tropical storm warning was issued at 11 p.m. Sunday for the western Straits of Florida and the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. The alert also covers the Dry Tortugas, a remote island 70 miles west of Key West and home to Dry Tortugas National Park. A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 36 hours or less.
