FIRST WEATHER-RADARTOPS


TORRENTIAL RAIN POUNDS SOUTHWEST FLORIDA.

SOME AREAS GOT MORE THAN THREE INCHES IN LESS THAN AN HOUR.

LET'S GO RIGHT TO METEOROLOGIST CODY MURPHY WHO'S BEEN MONITORING THE STRONG STORMS. Return to index of stories...


DFM FLOODING-OCSPLIT


THANKS CODY.

WE HAVE TEAM COVERAGE TONIGHT OF THE WEATHER

ABC 7'S TRENT KELLEY IS LIVE ALONG ONE OF THE HARDEST HIT STREETS NEAR MCGREGOR BOULEVARD, TRENT WHAT'S THE SCENE LIKE THERE? Return to index of stories...


DFM FLOODING-LIVE U2


Chloe -- we're here on Paloma Drive, not too far away from the Fort Myers Country Club, and as you can see, some of these sidewalks out here are covered in water -- at some points it's ankle deep.

This water is draining, it's just doing so very slowly, and it's making things hard for many of the neighbors who live out here. Return to index of stories...


DFM FLOODING-VO


Take a look at this video we shot earlier. Just moments after the rain stopped pouring.

You can see, front yards were turned into lakes. Sidewalks into rivers. Making it hard for neighbors to leave their homes.

While some of the people we talked to say it does flood every now and then out here. It very rarely gets this bad.

We spoke to one woman who says it wasn't just the rainfall that got her attention -- it was also the lightning. Return to index of stories...


DFM FLOODING-SOTVO


"Everything in the house that could be unplugged, was unplugged. Every cable and every wire was undone, cause it was that scary, it was right on too of us. The lighting was vicious, and I didn't take any chances."

We checked with our First Alert meteorologists who say this afternoons storms dumped at least 3 inches of water out here within the span of an hour -- more rainfall than many of the drainage ditches out here could handle. Return to index of stories...


DFM FLOODING-LIVE U2


Back out here live, again, the water is subsiding out here, it's just doing so very slowly.

So if you plan to dive out here as you go out tonight, please drive slow, and use caution.

Reporting live in Fort Myers, Trent Kelly, ABc 7. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-PWC ~ WX WALL


FULL WX

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

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

AREAS OF HEAVY RAIN CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON

A slow moving thunderstorm dropped up to 3" of rain on parts of downtown Fort Myers this afternoon.

Though activity today along the coastal areas has been somewhat isolated in total coverage, areas seeing rain have picked up a considerable amounts. Through this afternoon and evening these slow moving storms will continue to drop locally heavy rainfall before they continue to weaken toward sunset.

Temperatures overnight tonight will range from the mid to upper 70s, with warmer temps hugging the coastal areas

For Sunday, we will see a southern component to the wind early in the day. With that we'll be expecting to see some morning showers or isolated downpours move along the coastal areas in into the mid-day hours. Coverage should be kept mostly to areas west of I-75.

Into the afternoon on Sunday though, we will be monitoring some drier air in the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere. That will help to cut back on the overall coverage of rain the region is able to see on Sunday afternoon. Any rainfall should be isolated, and mainly kept in parts of the interior of the state near Hendy, Glades and interior Collier Counties.

This mass of somewhat drier air in the atmosphere will keep rain opportunities isolated Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures should be allowed to return to the low and mid 90s during the afternoon hours.

TROPICAL UPDATE

A Tropical wave located just off the west coast of Africa is being noted on satellite. The National Hurricane Center is offering this disturbance a 0% chance of organization in the next two days and a 20% chance of development in the next five.

Otherwise there are no tropical cyclones active and none are expected to develop in the next two days across the Atlantic, Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico. Return to index of stories...

21:30:51 ESLICK "We're just looking for public input opportunities that are meaningful before decision making" 21:30:57

THE ORGANIZATION WROTE A LETTER TO COUNTY COMMISSIONS YESTERDAY.

THEY THINK COMMENT TIME AT REGULAR MEETINGS IS GOOD, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO COUNTY WORKSHOPS IT'S A DIFFERENT STORY.

21:32:25 ESLICK "It does reach conclusion and that type of thing and not to have public input is a bad idea in our judgement." 21:32:32

COMMISSIONER CECIL PENDERGRASS IS ADVOCATING FOR MORE PUBLIC COMMENT TIME TOO.

21:41:31 PENDERGRASS"There's always two sides of every item, so it's nice to hear both sides, to hear the concerns the residents." 21:41:36

BUT HE SAYS IT WOULD MEAN ADDING MORE TIME TO WORKSHOPS.

SOMETHING HIS COLLEAGUE, COMMISSIONER BRIAN HAMMAN TELLS NBC 2 HE AGREES WITH.

21:40:41 PENDERGRASS"They'd book out two hours for a workshop, we'd spend an hour and a half on public comment we'd have no time to take any action." 21:40:47

THE VOICE SAYS THE COUNTY ATTORNEY RESPONDED.

THEY SAY IT'S NOT A LEGAL ISSUE BUT RATHER AN ISSUE OF THEM WANTING GOOD PUBLIC INPUT.
