Florida Emergency Management says rivers in the surrounding areas are near or already at flood stage. With even more rain, Leon County and others authorities are closely watching the storms. Recently, heavy rains subsided, leaving areas almost completely saturated and some properties flooded. Thursday night, a new storm created a potential relapse for people whose yards were under water.
Leroy Johnson with LCSO Special Operations said, "Some of them have just been through this less than two weeks ago and now they're having to go through it again."
Leon County Emergency Management, on guard in the face of more rain, says it's prepared for the worst. Richard Smith, Leon County Emergency Management Director said, "It could very easily and we'll have to watch it through tonight and tomorrow, but we could very easily be in the same situation we were in two weeks ago, so if you had some flooding problems two weeks ago, then you might be able to expect those same types of problems as we head into this weekend."
Leon County says special operations and public works have been put on alert to respond to possible flood situations. For severe weather updates, take a look at our forecast or click the link to the Florida Division of Emergency Management below.
