Today at the editor’s glance: Tropical-Hurricane-Tropical Storm Elsa will be roiling over Florida from around Cedar Key to the Georgia border today, with limited, localized effects expected in Flagler County until mid to late afternoon. “Limited” could be a double-edged storm: the effects could be limited to rains and winds from Elsa’s outer bands. But the storm could also spawn tornadoes, according to Flagler Emergency Management Chief Jonathan Lord. Freedom Fest at the county airport drew large crowds on Saturday, an expression of relief as residents and visitors embraced the first big-size special event since the pandemic began its ravages and campaign of cancellation 16 months ago. Flagler Broadcasting’s David Ayres, who produced Freedom Fest with Flagler County’s Roy Sieger, had photographer JT Merriam of Merriammultimedia.com capturing the event with his cameras. Here are a few of his soaring shots:
