The remnants of Tropical Storm Fay lingered Sunday, forcing residents in several parts of northern Florida to leave their homes as floodwaters rose. Officials used boats to ferry people from homes in DeBary, 25 miles north of Orlando, where some streets were under four feet of water, and from several neighborhoods in and around Tallahassee. About 70 homes in DeBary were under an evacuation order after ponds spilled over. A handful of people were taken out by boat, while others were able to leave on their own, county emergency officials said.
