A Coastal Flood Advisory from the National Weather Service is in effect in the San Marco and Ortega neighborhoods of Jacksonville through at least the middle of next week.

Lindsay Hardee lives about a block away from the river in San Marco. She says the road has been so flooded, she found a fish in the road. And sure enough, a few yards away from where she’s standing, a six-inch gray fish is baking in the sun.
