JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tropical Storm Isaac is moving toward the Sunshine State, and that has road crews and home owners running to prepare for possible flooding in coming days.
Water is already impacting roadways and crews tell Action News they're rushing all over town to correct various issues before more rain falls.
A hole developed in the center lane of I-95 Southbound Wednesday morning, that caused backups throughout the day. The hole caused concrete to crumble and fall to Hendricks Avenue below. No one was hurt, but it caused major concerns regarding the bridge's safety, especially with rains on the way.
"It is safe. As long as we make these repairs it's safe," said Mike Goldman, Spokesperson for the FDOT.
Crews rushed to correct the problem, while burdened with other flooding issues across the area.
Meanwhile, students at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts waded through water to get to their lockers, which concerned parents.
"It was several inches in the hallway and in the atrium, and the fountain was overflowing and the aqueduct was like a waterfall," said Becky Blacka. "I just hope they can stay ok top of it. I know the grounds pretty wet already and I know there's more rain coming."
DCPS Spokesperson Jill Johnson confirmed a number of schools are being impacted by rising waters. Some classrooms have been closed, and busses and parents have had to be re-reouted.
In Clay County, those living along Black Creek are also concerned. They're are still recovering after near-record flooding following Tropical Storm Debby.
"People have already had a lot of loss, a lot of damage to their homes," said homeowner Gary Burkett, whose road continues to be closed. "That's the last thing they need - more water in their houses."
That may be hard to avoid, however, as Isaac inches closer, so all they can do is prepare.
