To those who live in the area,how badly does St.Augustine flood?
I'm posting here due to,that there doesn't seem to be an area for St.Augustine other than here,unless I'm wrong.
Thanks in advance

Do you mean historic downtown St. Augustine? Yes, parts do flood and there's really nothing that can be done about that. It's just part of the charm of living there .

You can have the potential for flooding anywhere in Florida, really. We get a lot of rain. Even when it's not raining, there is water everywhere - rivers, lakes, ocean, etc.

Are you concerned about a specific area?

When I lived in St. Aug (I live in Jax now), I did not live in an area that flooded, so I'm not sure what - if anything - people do who live in areas that flood. They just deal with it afterwards, I suppose . Sort of like your basement flooding in NY.

It's not as if this is some widespread problem. There are just certain spots in all the counties that have a greater likelihood of flooding. In St. Augustine, there are some streets in the historical downtown area that can flood. If you're not planning to buy in historical downtown St. Aug, then I would not be concerned about it.

If you're really concerned about flooding, one way to target in on areas that tend to stay dry is to find some hurricane evacuation zone maps. The "higher & drier" elevations are often "Cat 5" for hurricane evacuation where the "wetter" areas might be "Cat 1" or "Cat 2". It's not a foolproof system, but it's a way to begin to identify general areas.
