COLLIER COUNTY, Fla -- The wet weather over the last few days has lead to some flooded roads across some Southwest Florida neighborhoods and a few trouble spots for turtle nests along the beach in Collier County.
According to Maura Kraus with Collier County at least 17 turtle nests and 1,700 eggs have been wiped out by the wet weather.
Kraus says this weeks loss is minor compared to last year when Tropical Storm Debbie wiped out dozens of nests.
Environmental experts will keep a close eye on the nests over the next few days hoping mother nature lets up before more nests are washed away.
Kraus says they have not yet made it out to areas like Keywaden Island or the 10,000 islands so they estimate that number of 17 will go up as they get out and do more surveys.
