Debby brings major flooding to Panhandle

By

Tuesday morning Debby began drifting eastward, after spending all of Monday parked off the coast of Apalachicola and bringing heavy rainfall across the Florida Panhandle as far east as Suwannee County.  Wakulla County received more than a foot of rain Monday afternoon, and Tuesday morning brought a report of 3 feet of floodwater in Suwannee County in downtown Live Oak.  On Monday afternoon the Governor declared an emergency and fully activated the state’s emergency operations center.  This report from NBC News details some of Monday’s damage across the Florida Panhandle.
