Bradford county surveys Debby damage
Bradford County is not a coastal county–but that hasn’t kept it immune from the impact of Tropical Storm Debby. WUFT-FM’s Forrest Smith talked with Bradford Emergency Management Spokesman Michael Heeder about some flooding problems in the area, especially around certain lakes.
Heeder says people need to remember that as long as Tropical Storm Debby stalls in the Gulf of Mexico, the threat of more heavy rain and possible flooding remains.
