St. Johns River Expert Talks Flooding, Future Storms.

Published September 4, 2008 - WMFE-FM
There are still spots along the St. Johns River where floodwaters from Tropical Storm Fay continue to rise. The river at Sanford is expected to top eight feet later today, bringing it to "major flood" stage, while the St. Johns at Deland is also on track to reach "major" flooding with a bit more than five-and-a-half feet. Depending on how much rain Tropical Storm Hanna brings, an already bad situation for hundreds homeowners could get even worse. 90.7's David Pitman talked about that with University of Central Florida Civil Engineering professor Dr. Scott Hagen. He has spent years studying the St. Johns and he says the river is acting just as he would expect it to, after a storm like Fay.
