Flooding from heavy rains in Levy County has left both coastal and inland areas overrun with standing water. While normal summer weather patterns are expected to return later this week, a boil water notice was put into effect.
Fifteen inches of rain fell over 48 hours throughout the weekend, said Maj. Scott Harden of the Dixie County Sheriff’s Office. According to Harden, 200 homes and 50 streets and roads have flooded.
Dixie County residents are being pushed out of their homes as flood waters rise after heavy rain in the past 24 hours. About 45 homes and 30 roads have been affected throughout the county.
Severe weather continued to impact towns in Oklahoma and Texas over the holiday weekend. The tornadoes and floods have taken a toll on the surrounding communities, leaving residents to salvage their belongings left in the aftermath. The recent flood in Central Texas has left 12 missing along the Blanco River.
