MYAKKA CITY, Fla. (AP) - Many parts of Florida's Gulf Coast are feeling the effects of heavy rain, including closed roads, flooding and waterlogged streets.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Wednesday that two highways that run through Myakka City in Manatee County are closed by high water over the roadways.
Some parts of the Tampa Bay area have received more than five inches of rain and are expected to receive another three inches Wednesday.
The region has been inundated since Monday by a tropical low-pressure system over the Gulf of Mexico that is pumping moisture along a stalled frontal boundary hanging across north Florida.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for several counties in the Tampa Bay area until Wednesday night.
