Flooding and Road Closures
Slowly but surely, the water is still rising and it's expected to crest sometime this evening, early morning in certain areas. While some begin to pack up and leave their homes, some have already evacuated, but all still think this is a sight to see. Officials in Suwannee had to enforce road closures on County Road 250 and State Road 90. State Road 90 leads to Suwannee State Park, which now has water all over the roadway. It's even come as close to homes, envading the front yards and forcing residents to leave.
Department of Transportation representative, Gina Busscher says," Of course that's a long detour route for people who normally use use 90, they would have to use I-10 and get off in Lee, which is in Madison county to go around. So they probably need to go ahead and make plans right now if traveling east and west".
D-O-T is supporting any county who needs help, handing out extra cones, sandbags, and road closed signs. Suwannee County Emergency Management is still operating at level one, twenty four hours around the clock. For any one traveling this Easter sunday on the highways can dial 511 for any road closure information.
