Santa Fe River Rises
Published July 1st, 2012
Homeowners in Fort White had a great scare this week with all of the flooding from Debby.
John from Fort White says the water from the Santa Fe almost reached his home, but thankfully his downstairs game room was untouched.
He says his family did prepare by picking up all of their belongings and stacking them up high to avoid any water damage, water which could have crept a lot closer
Meanwhile right across the street at an entrance to the Santa Fe river, people stopped on and off all day, to look at the water's high rise.
The Santa Fe river was at it's highest today at nearly 33 feet and officials say this is the highest it's been since 1998.
Thankfully there are some homeowners out there who have not had any major damages, but some a little further down the river weren't so lucky.
