NASA's Kennedy Space Center Closes for Tropical Storm Fay

"NASA's Kennedy Space Center will be closed Tuesday, Aug. 19, because of the potential threat from Tropical Storm Fay. Current plans call for the center to be closed for 24 hours, starting with workers' first-shift Tuesday morning. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex also is closed Tuesday. Kennedy managers are scheduled to meet again at 5 p.m. EDT to reevaluate the storm's status and its impact on the center."

"All hurricane warnings have been discontinued as Tropical Storm Fay makes landfall on the Florida peninsula. Fay's tracking path again moved a bit more to the east. It's on a track that will now take it east of Orlando late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. But at that point, forecasters think Fay's winds will be down to between 35-45 mph. At 5 a.m., the center of Tropical Storm Fay was located on the Florida coastline at Cape Romano."
