    Please DO NOT drive thru standing water. Deputies are rescuing several motorists in situations like this in the photo posted below. This is Thompson Road in the south end of Walton County

    We were in the bathtub for tornado last night around quarter to 1... We could hear it, I think they said it came close to the ground but may not have touched. We are in black creek area of Freeport.

    I certainly hope the county learned their lesson from the redfish lake washout recently - don't wait for Huckabee to call. Jump on it and make repairs immediately!

    Bad news. Eastern Lake, Deer Lake, and Camp Creek bridges are still fine, but "infrastructure issues" are going to be severe in the coming months.

    If we have three bridges out at one time, some people are not going to be able to get around too easily. There are enough road problems in the rest of the county, that I can't foresee any of this getting fixed very quickly.

    Thank you all for this information. My Mom died unexpectedly on Monday night, and the weather at the beach has been the least of my worries. I will call someone to check on our property,
