FL closes river as flooding continues

Published August 31, 2008 - Disaster News Network
In addition to the two to two and a half feet of rainfall in some places, swollen streams and lakes are still pushing water into areas along the St. Johns River basin. Florida's longest river, the 310 mile long St. Johns, flows northward from Lake Hell'n Blazes to the south in Indian River County to the Atlantic Ocean at Jacksonville. Flooding is building in locations north and west of Brevard County where Fay dumped most of her rain.

The St. Johns is closed to all boat traffic between southern Brevard County and northern Volusia County to minimize wakes that might push more water into residences in the flood plane.
