PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – Heavy rain is causing localized flooding in low-lying areas of Pasco County.
Drivers are being asked to avoid using Seven Springs Boulevard – south of State Road 54 and north of Perrine Ranch Road – as parts of the road are impassable due to flash flooding.
Roads can flood quickly during heavy downpours.
“We remind you to turn around when you encounter flooding in streets as your vehicle can become damaged or stranded. Floodwaters are often deeper than they look,” Pasco County Communications PIO said in a release.
Driving or walking through flooded roads can put you at serious risk of drowning.
