TOSS TO RICK-OC ZM MAP EAniBx


A POPULAR NAPLES WATERWAY IS CLOSING ONCE AGAIN.

LAST YEAR - CLAM PASS WAS IMPASSABLE FOR MONTHS, AFTER TROPICAL STORMS MOVED TOO MUCH SAND INTO THE CHANNEL.

YOU MAY REMEMBER - AT ONE POINT PEOPLE ON THE BEACH STARTED TO DIG OUT THE SAND THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY WERE WORRIED THE ECOSYSTEM WOULD SUFFER IF THE WATER STOPPED FLOWING.

SHORTLY AFTER - COUNTY COMMISSIONERS DECLARED A STATE OF EMERGENCY AND SPENT *TWO-HUNDRED-THOUSAND DOLLARS* TO DREDGE THE WATERWAY.

NOW COMMISSIONERS ARE LOOKING TO DREDGE.AGAIN.

NBC2'S RICK RITTER JOINS US NOW LIVE WITH A CLOSER LOOK AT THE PASS AND THE DAMAGE DONE, RICK? Return to index of stories...

CLAM PASS FILLING UP-PKG


DEJA VU IN NAPLES -

Chris Renouard/Naples/14:19: "it's heartbreaking, this is a place we've been coming to for years."

FOR CHRIS RENOUARD - IT'S FAR TOO FAMILIAR.

Chris Renouard/15:11 "I don't know what we're going to do, i cannot believe it's two years in a row that we're going to have the same problem."

A *YEARLY* PROBLEM.

JUST THIRTEEN MONTHS AFTER CREWS DREDGED CLAM PASS - WINTER STORMS HAVE THE CHANNEL FLOWING BACK TOWARD SQUARE ONE.

IN OTHER WORDS - *IMPASSABLE*

Tricia Miles/Visiting Naples/26:39 "very sad, we hope for better."

WITHOUT THE PROPER FLOW OF WATER - A CLOGGED PASS THREATENS MANGROVES, WILDLIFE AND EVEN BOATERS WHO COULD GET STUCK.

NOW - BEACHGOERS HAVE JUST ONE QUESTION.

Chris Renouard/15:19 "how can we correct it forever?"

THAT'S EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

NBC-2 TRACKED DOWN COLLIER COMMISSIONER GEORGIA HILLER WHO SAYS THE COUNTY IS SEEKING A PERMIT FOR DREDGING ONCE AGAIN.

Commissioner Georgia Hiller/4:49:44 "sand started filling in the past again and the tidal forces just aren't strong enough to keep the sand out."

BUT BECAUSE IT'S SUCH A * FRAGILE PASS* - THEY'RE AFRAID THEY'LL HAVE TO CONSTANTLY MAINTAIN THE CHANNEL FOR YEARS TO COME.

MEANING A LONG TERM SOLUTION - MIGHT NOT BE AN OPTION

Commissioner Hiller/4:50:07 "it's not going to stop and it's going to be this way 10 years from now, that's just the nature of the pass."

Tricia Miles/24:55 "we hope they can find a real answer that lasts." Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Clouds and some sun will take over for the rest of the afternoon, while temperatures climb into the lower 90s. Just like yesterday, it will be quite humid with an easterly breeze with gusts approaching 20mph. This will not only carry over some extra clouds during the late afternoon, but it will also bring in a few passing downpours from time to time.

Through the evening, expect a few rain areas to move out by the coast and eventually over the Gulf waters tonight. Expect partly cloudy skies during the overnight period, with temperatures by morning in the lower 70s.

We'll be watching a batch of tropical moisture just off to our east and southeast associated with a weak tropical wave. The influx of moisture across Southwest Florida will enhance our rain prospects Wednesday and especially Thursday as it interacts with an approaching cold front. This means rain becomes a bit more widespread across the area. As a result, daytime highs will be held down in the upper 80s. A few showers will linger through early Friday, with clearing skies late in the day. This will give way to a sunnier weekend with lower humidity as overnight temperatures dip into the lower half of the 60s. Afternoons will stay pretty warm though, with temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Return to index of stories...
