Debbie is little one. It has been raining and blowing here for a day and promises to stay that way for a couple more. I have to dress up a little more than is comfortable on my scoot but otherwise this is no big deal. If it cranks up a couple of notches or spawns tornadoes, maybe different.

I’m in Hernando County and we are in a feeder band,or what’s left of it. It’s been somewhat nasty in this area.

Not much of a deal, no Charlie that’s for sure. It filled the pool and washed the cars.

Well, it already HAS been spawning tornadoes all day long across western and central florida... plus dumping buckets of rain. I suspect when it’s all said and done, there will be areas all over the state with 15-20+ inches of rainfall and some pretty stout flooding as it could be a very slow mover (still not sure on that yet).

You can tell it’s raining in Jacksonville when all the local TV stations go into panic mode and show reporters up to their ankles in the curbs.

There are people going in the water down in Clearwater/St.Petersburg. One woman was holding a little girl!

WTF is wrong with these people?

People in Pinellas and Pasco County are canoeing/kayaking down their streets. Two guys had a case of beer in their canoe.

Do you get Bay News 9? At least two people took videos of a tornado.

Scary stuff.

May I ask a dumb question?

Just how deep is 4” of water? Would that come up to your midsection,or am I way off?

It just seems like 4 inches of rain would come up a little higher than the ankle.

When I was in college in Kansas City, there was a huge flood, people died, idiot me, I was out with my friends driving around to “see”, could have been washed away

How much water would it take to reach your roof?.................... ??? Much more than what we got here. We need this rain to fill the canals around us so the 13 surrounding golf courses can keep their fairways green. It still has a way to go, we’re still about 18” shy.

There are people whose homes are completely flooded and the water is getting higher.
