I have high hopes for Florida. The state usually comes out of a drought in June. Now the southwest part of the country? That seems to be an ongoing issue.

Tropical Storm Barry dumped up to five inches of much needed rainfall on parts of Central Florida.

The problem is it was no where enough to end the regions drought.

Barry dropped about an inch and an half of rain in Orange County. However, its impact on the lake levels at Lake Sybelia was hardly noticeable Sunday.

The rain deficit in Orange County is now at about seven inches.

Meanwhile, some residents by Lake Sybelia expressed concern the extended drought conditions would lead to tighter restrictions on how often they can irrigate their lawn.

St. Johns River Water Management District tells News 13 it has no plans to reduce the current restriction, which is twice a week with no watering during the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

I for one am so glad that Barry brought needed rain for the Southeast. Wildfires have been burning out of control spreading smoke and haze as far west as where I live in Ms. We have had first ever air quality advisories and I have severe allergies and the smell of smoke has made me sick.

I love weather and watch the weather channel all the time. Find weather facinating. Thanks for info on Barry.

The Hillsborough County Emergency website indicates that the statistical odds of a hurricane hitting the county (Tampa is in Hillsborough County) are at .9 percent......just under one percent!!! Personally I'm bothered more by recurring stories on the latest celebrity scandal being broadcast on tv than I am a hurricane or tropical storm!!

Tropical Storm Barry helped drop the "drought index" on the Treasure Coast by a couple hundred points! Yay for Barry!

Found the following stats interesting. We got a very large number of folks in the coastal areas....

The state most vulnerable to hurricanes Florida—- That's how long it has been since those major metropolitan areas of Florida —- the state most vulnerable to hurricanes have been hit by a Category 3 or higher storm.

Jacksonville: 127 years.
Tampa: 86 years.
Sarasota: 63 years.
Fort Lauderdale: 57 years.
Miami: 15 years.


The six-month hurricane season began Friday, but the next deadly hurricane catastrophe is developing right now, forecasters and emergency managers say. And Florida is most at risk.

Enormous numbers of people who have never experienced the colossal, life-threatening power of hurricanes are flocking to coastal cities around the state. More than 17 million Floridians live along the coast.
