LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol has reopened westbound lanes of Interstate 10 between Baker and Columbia counties in north Florida.
But the agency says eastbound lanes remained closed Thursday morning due to flooding caused by torrential rainfall from Tropical Storm Debby.
Parts of the main east-west route through north Florida were closed by troopers earlier in the week when water covered parts of both sides of the highway.
State emergency officials say flood warnings are still in effect for several north and west-central Florida rivers and about a half-dozen counties. Parts of the Upper Suwannee and Upper Santa Fe rivers are expected to crest between Friday and Saturday, and some areas will face possible flooding into next week.
