AP - Campers at a barrier island on the Georgia coast are being told to leave by the afternoon as subtropical storm Beryl rumbles toward the U.S.
Cumberland Island is reachable only by boat and has a number of undeveloped beaches and forests popular with campers.
Fred Boyles is superintendent for the Cumberland Island National Seashore. He says visitors are being told to leave by 4:45 p.m. Sunday.
In Jacksonville, Fla., Sunday's jazz festival and Memorial Day ceremony were canceled. Workers are also out clearing tree limbs and debris that could be tossed about by the storm's winds, which had reached 60 mph (97 kph) by late Sunday morning.
Beryl was centered about 125 miles (201 kilometers) east of Jacksonville. Current forecasts have it making landfall late Sunday or early Monday.
