Tropical Depression Bonnie has finished crossing the Florida peninsula, leaving little damage in in it's path.

Bonnie, the second storm of the Atlantic Hurricane season, made landfall near Miami with little impact.

It is expected to strengthen in the Gulf of Mexico as it continues to the northwest.  The National Hurricane Center puts it on a path toward Louisiana/Mississippi border.  That track has it making landfall again late saturday or early Sunday morning.
