Be Cautious Traveling Through North Florida Easter Week

Be aware that there are a lot of flooded areas.

Per First Coast News:

According to the Florida Division of Emergency Management, officials blame record flooding for the deaths of two people. Recent heavy rains have forced transportation officials to close 253 roadways and 23 bridges so far. Most of the seven major rivers west of Tallahassee have already crested, smashing flood stage records set in 1948.

They continue monitoring waterways and bridges east of Tallahassee, especially in the Suwannee River area from Interstate 10 south to the Gulf. Emergency officials say rivers and water in low-lying areas continue rising and they might even have to close Interstate 10 if conditions worsen.

If your GPS navigation system is anything like mine, it WILL attempt to reroute you through some roads that may be even less safe in the event your main route is closed. Be careful.
