Ris­ing river threat to Irma vic­tims

The Citizens' Voice - - NATION & WORLD -

Of­fi­cials went door-todoor Satur­day warn­ing res­i­dents who live near the With­la­coochee River north of the Tampa area of the po­ten­tial for record-high flood­ing in com­ing days.

The new evac­u­a­tions come as peo­ple from Key West to Jack­sonville pick up the pieces af­ter Hur­ri­cane Irma rav­aged the state, leav­ing many still with­out power and school of­fi­cials try­ing to de­ter­mine when stu­dents can re­turn to classes.

Deputies and fire­fight­ers used boats to get to homes along the river to urge res­i­dents to get out.
