SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — As Hurricane Ian moves closer, all eyes in Seminole County are turning to the Saint Johns River.
Anyone near the river and lakes in the area are at risk of flooding, and emergency officials have concerns with Hurricane Ian approaching because the water is already high due this year’s rain.
“We are at action stage (at) Lake Harney, we do not need any additional water,” said Alan Harris with Seminole County Emergency Management. “So even if we do not get a direct hit, this will be a flood event for us.”
Markers now line the roads in low-lying areas so drivers and emergency crews can see where the road is, and how deep the water is.
