Just checking out the FHP site and it says 30A at 283 closed due to water.:blink:
How bad is it? (or is it just Pandoras parking lot spilling over?)
just checked back and they updated it to say..."ROAD CLOSED FROM CR-30A/CR-283 TO CR-30A/CR-83 DUE TO FLOODING FROM THE LAKES"

It is closed at big redfish lake. They waited until it stopped raining to close it and I guess they wanted to go to bed so they have left it closed although there is very little water coving the road now. 10 pm

Winds are relatively calm, surf is high, flags are red.

I imagine a lot of these have cleared up since yesterday evening, we have had very little rain over the last 12 hours so that is the good news.

Bridge over big redfish is still closed. The upper lake is not draining into the lower lake. Perhaps the invasive grass that has been growing all across the lake on south side of the bridge has stopped it up.
