(WDAY TV) -- No one's sure where she's headed.. But tropical storm Debby is strengthening off the gulf -- threatening low-lying coastal areas.

Louisiana's governor is jumping to action, declaring a state emergency. It's mostly a bureaucratic move, making it easier for state officials to send supplies and workers to disaster-stricken areas.

The storm's already dumped heavy rain on parts of Florida, moving slowly over the Gulf of Mexico. It's not completely clear when or where Debby will make landfall.

Current models show it reaching hurricane strength by the time it hits the Louisiana coast.
