North Port Flooding Update
Francesco Abbruzzino, The Uncensored Report, LLC
It was a quiet night Sunday into Monday. Some roads in low lying areas are still unpassable. However, no water rescues were necessary. We continue to check street levels, continue measurements, and maintain a presence in the affected area. No homes are currently under the threat of water intrusion.
We’re watching the USGS gauges at Route 72 and at Tropicaire. Both continue to go down. We’ve experienced slight upticks around evening showers. The storms are slowing down the progress but are not making it worse. We are recovering quickly when a storm does hit. It could be upwards of a week until levels are back to normal.
Our shelter hosted by the American Red Cross is now closed. Our free self-serve sandbag station remains open. The Emergency Operations Center is transitioned into a Department Operation Center at Fire Station 81.
