Florida Hurricane Information

Flooding in Florida from Tropical Storm Debby, June 2012

Heavy rain from Tropical Storm Debby began affecting west-central Florida on June 21, 2012 as it moved into the Gulf of Mexico. The storm idled off of the coast of north Florida before making landfall near Steinhatchee on June 26 then moved across north Florida and into the Atlantic Ocean on June 27 near Palm Coast, north of Daytona, Fl. Heavy rains occurred in the Tampa Bay area (15 inches) on June 24, in Wakulla (26 inches) on June 25, and in Jacksonville (6 inches) on June 26 resulting in widespread flooding. USGS streamflow gages recorded 9 stations with period of record peaks. USGS staff made over 100 discharge measurements during this time and repaired numerous gages. In the Tampa area, the resulting flood at Anclote River near Elfers, Florida was the second highest in 67 years and had a 1% (1 chance in 100 for any given year) chance of recurring. In north Florida, south of Tallahassee the flood at Sopchoppy River near Sopchoppy, Fl was the highest in 51 years of record. The chance of recurring was over 0.2% (1 chance in 500 for any given year). In northeast Florida, at North Fork Black Creek near Middleburg the peak was the highest since 1919 and also had a 1% chance of recurring.

In Florida the USGS maintains a network of more than 500 stream gages that provide data in real time. Data from these gages are used by local, state and federal officials for numerous purposes, including public safety and flood forecasting by the National Weather Service.

This video was taken 6/27/12 on Lassie Black Road after heading South on US441 from State Road 6. Employees were heading to site 02315500, Suwanee at White Springs, as they approached a washed out bridge at Falling Creek forcing them to turn around.
