Flood warning for Santa Fe River at Fort White

Live Oak — The National Weather Service in Jacksonville has issued a flood warning for the Santa Fe River at Fort White affecting Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Gilchrist, Suwannee and Union counties. 

Additional rainfall runoff flowing into the already elevated Santa Fe River will cause the river to reach flood stage at Fort White on Friday evening. Rainfall up to 1.5" is predicted for the Santa Fe Basin. The current forecast calls for a crest a foot above flood stage on Monday, considered minor flooding. The Santa Fe at Three Rivers is not forecast to reach flood stage at this time. Forecasts will be updated based on actual rainfall amounts. Residents should pay close attention to the Santa Fe forecasts over the next several days.
