HOUSTON (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Debby meandered on an uncertain track toward the Florida coast on Sunday, bringing strong winds and waves that forced the closure of about a quarter of offshore oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico.

Debby, the first named storm of 2012 to enter the Gulf of Mexico, was centered about 205 miles east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River and was moving slowly northeast at around 3 mph at 4 p.m. CDT (2100 GMT), the National Hurricane Center said. Debby, no longer expected to gain hurricane strength, packed winds of 60 mph, the Miami-based center said.
