Sanat Fe River Flood Levels Rise

"Tuesday afternoon we were down on the parking lot where the two buildings are," Paula Sternbach
Four days later you can't even see the parking lot.
"We didn't expect this much at all. I didn't expect to see the buildings pretty much under water," said Steve Sternbach.
The Sternbachs moved from Miami to High Springs three years ago .
"All our friends are calling us and saying are you under water, are you under water. Send us pictures. They are amazed by this."
Seems like many people are curious to see just how much water is covering this boat ramp, which now you can't even see.
All just days after tropical storm Debbie.
While we were at the bridge on state road 47, we spoke to Kendall Thurston, who got back from Vermont Friday night.
We caught up to him while on his way to check out a house he has near the Suwannee River.
"I am expecting to have the water up on the lawn, but hopefully not underneath the house. So that's all I can hope for," said Thurston.
Several people have lost their homes to the flooding. Paula and Steve are a fortunate couple who did not have to evacuate from their home.
"We were lucky that we hadn't had much rain, so the ground was able to absorb most of it, but now we are full if we get another storm then we will be in trouble," said Steve Sternbach.
Now all eyes to the sky. As any rain would likely make an already bad situation even worse.
