ALACHUA ‒ Hurricane turned Tropical Storm Elsa swept across the peninsular of Florida slamming into the Big Bend area, bringing bouts of wind and waves of downpours to the heartland communities. The Northwest 105th Avenue bridge crossing Turkey Creek in Alachua was inundated by early afternoon Wednesday. As expected, the tropical storm left many without power and roadways closed due to flooding and downed trees, with the High Springs area experiencing numerous roadway blockages for a variety of reasons including downed trees and localized flooding.
