Santa Fe River Rapidly Rising
Tropical Storm Debby is out of the way for now, but the effects of the tropical weather system are still flowing through North Central Florida.
“The river was very low, well now it’s maxed out.”
High Springs residents like Henry Mogler, have watched the water levels of the Santa Fe increase dramatically in a matter of days... completely changing landscapes they were once familiar with.
Mogler says this is this fastest he's seen the river rise.
“Because the water level has been rising on average at about 3 inches per hour,so if you do the math it was bound to come in the house.”
Just Northwest of High Springs in Fort White the Santa Fe River is expected to crest on Sunday at about 33 feet.
Just upstream in Ft. White the flood level of the Santa Fe is measuring 30 feet.
32 miles of the Santa Fe River have been declared a no wake zone and will remain so until flood waters recede.
