The Water Continues to Rise at Fanning Springs Park
Â Â Â Flood warnings continue for the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers in five North Central Florida counties.Â Even as communities, businesses and parks near the water prepare for the worst, the flooding is not stopping some from having a little bit of fun.
Â Â Â Â Fanning Springs had to close the spring for swimmers due to the rising waters of the Suwannee river.Â The water has been rising a foot a day and it's expected to reach about 19 feet in two weeks. The rest of the park is still open and operating normally.Â Visitors can still enjoy volleyball, the playground, the board walk and the waste side.
Â Â Â Â Steve Davenport, Assistant Park Manager says," It continues to rise, some of the structures that we have are beginning to go under water".Â The park doesn't expect for the water to reach 19 feet until April 20th.
