Indeed, water levels are at least two feet higher than normal, and will likely be that way, or higher, through the weekend due to full moon. Minor to moderate flooding still being reported in Jacksonville
, and expected to continue into next week.
This will likely affect sailors as the fixed bridges will offer less vertical clearance. I will look at nearby bridges tomorrow to see if the clearance boards are showing less than 65'.
wayne b. - I am posting
info as I receive it, and it may be outdated very quickly, perhaps even as I post it. I am doing it in good faith, though I cannot vouch as to its accuracy. Cell service
has just recently become useful, and internet for me is still sketchy. I am also speaking to fellow (experienced) boaters in the area, so my comments are a combination of personal observations, direct communications
with public officials and second hand reports.
By all means, please post your observations and share with others as you travel south. Safe voyage!
