Tropical Storm Andrea cut a path of soaking rain up the East Coast last week and created a problem for some Southern boaters.
High winds from the storm rocked a number of boats in Florida.
"My girlfriend said, ‘There's a tornado warning, you shouldn't go,' but I was already on my way," Fort Myers boater Bob Butterfield told Live 5 News. "Oh well."
Butterfield was flipped out of his boat in the choppy waters kicked up by Andrea.
Another boater was rescued by Coast Guardsmen after his 30-foot sailboat began to drift into the Cortez Road Bridge in Bradenton. The crew arrived at 10:36 a.m. to find the vessel dragging three anchors because of the high winds from Andrea.
