Tampa Bay area may see flooding in coming days from rising river levels

Hurricane Irma

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The tremendous rainfall from Irma has lead to a quick and substantial rise in local river levels.

While many have already hit their forecast crest, other rivers are still rising.

“While many local rivers slowly recede, there are a few that will continue to rise through the weekend and into next week. The Withlacoochee River at Croom and Trilby, the Hillsborough River at Morris Bridge, and the Peace River at Arcadia and Zolfo Springs will likely stay well above flood stage,” Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Ed Bloodsworth said.

Many of the areas in Tampa Bay could see some major flooding even into next week. Click through the gallery below to find out what to expect in your area.
