Flooding on the Santa Fe River
So far things are safe in Alachua County provided that we don't get much more rain. The Joint Aviation Unit, comprised of the Alachua County Sheriff's Office and the Gainesville Police Department is surveying the north border of Alachua County.
Both agencies are checking for any flooding on the Santa Fe River. GPD's Mike Barnes and his flight crew are getting ready to survey Alachua County for any potential floods. "Residents should just be aware of the weather that's coming up," says Barnes.
He says its important to know what is going on both inside and outside the County. "The majority of the flooding is being caused from the rains that are up north and in Georgia," says Barnes.
Barnes' helicopter started in the Worthington Springs area. They worked their way down the Santa Fe River to High Springs and the Alachua County line right around Poe Springs Park. For more on this story please see video:
