Driving Conditions Deteriorate as Tropical Storm Approaches

HERNANDO – As conditions continue to deteriorate due to the encroaching Tropical Storm, driving conditions are becoming more treacherous for motorists throughout the region.

There are already reports of several injury accidents in Hernando County but there have been no reports of fatalities. There are also reports of power outages which are causing traffic signals to switch to flash mode.

With heavy wind and rain expected to increase over the next 24 to 48 hours, officials have issued a Tropical Storm Warning and a Hurricane Watch for the Adventure Coast northward through the Big Bend area.

Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency for 42 Florida Counties.

RNRF will report on any breaking storm related news as the system passes over our region.

  • If you think this not a big deal and its a over hyped rain event, talk to the people that live in flood zones or along the coast and see how they feel about the hyped rain event.
    Be prepared, be cautious and aware of your surroundings. While your at it help some one if its needed.

  • Ok, so if a state of emergency has been issued, why aren’t businesses being closed early? I understand American Red Cross, funding etcetera. When I was a Manager in NY and state of emergency was issued everything was closed. Only vehicles that were permitted on the roads were emergency vehicles. Is that not the case here ?

  • We are here on the Gulf with expected wind gusts between 40 to 50 miles per hour. That means the Gulf will hiccup into our yard. Floridians take these storms seriously not just as a rain event. Ask anyone living in flood zones if they are laughing as their houses get destroyed by “a rain event.” Being prepared is always the smart idea, if nothing happens so what, not preparing is just ignorant and it is how people get hurt. Good luck to everyone.
