Tropical Depression Emily is moving away from Florida. At 5 am Tuesday, Emily was located near 28.3 North, 80.1 West, or about 50 miles east-northeast of Vero Beach. Emily was moving east-northeast at 12 miles per hour and had peak winds of 30 miles per hour. Some strengthening is possible as Emily moves well off the U.S. east coast, and it should lose its tropical characteristics in a day or so.
