Sun Shines Light On Bay Area Flooding


The bay area is getting a break Tuesday from near-constant rain. However, problems are far from over, as the Anclote River is still well above flood stage and could affect six thousand homes in Pasco County.

Fears of flooding are also in effect from the Little Manatee, the Alafia, and the Hillsborough Rivers along with Cypress Creek, as a flood watch remains in effect until 8 tonight for Hillsborough, Pinellas, Citrus, Hernando, and Pasco Counties.

Because of this, scattered evacuations are underway in places that face high tides. Standing water is also still a problem, as roads and streets around the bay area are still without clear passageway.

When those waters recede, the American Red Cross plans to go through neighborhoods affected by flooding and hand out food and water.
