First Coast Sees Some Flooding, High Surf With Nor'easter Conditions

Sep 21, 2020

The beaches will continue to experience unusually high surf and tides, dangerous currents and strong winds through Monday.

WJCT News partner News4Jax reports while the rains diminished on Sunday, the wind-driven tide surged even higher, battering area beaches and flooding low-lying coastal areas.


The city of St. Augustine is under a flood alert through Monday and some streets downtown had standing water during high tides again Sunday. Parts of King Street, St. George Street, Avenida Menedez on the south end and almost all of Cordova Street flooded Saturday.

On Sunday, the water lapped over seawall out of the bay into the Oldest City. Residents said Ribera Street at South Street in Lincolnville had more than a foot of standing water. Visitors said the water was ankle deep near the curbs.

Other areas around the First Coast have also experienced weather woes. A look at those is in an expanded version of this story and video report at News4Jax.
