County monitoring rising waters near North Port intersection

Venice, Florida -- Heavy rains in recent days have Sarasota County Emergency Management officials monitoring a canal near the intersection of Tropicaire Boulevard and Van Camp Street in North Port for possible flooding.

Officials are recommending that residents in 33 homes located in the Woodland subdivision be prepared to shelter in place in their home and to plan any travel in or out of the area accordingly.

In the event the intersection does flood, Emergency Management officials are warning homeowners that the street may become impassible to emergency vehicles.

The current water level is about 2 feet below the street; however, weather forecasts are predicting possible isolated storms over the next few days.

A Code Red phone alert is being sent to homes that could be impacted.
