Cedar Key Residents Ready For Andrea
Cedar Key, FL. -- It was almost one year ago that Tropical Storm Debby moved through North Central Florida causing severe flooding and damage from what many thought would be a minor storm.
Today, tropcial storm force winds and rain made their presence known in Cedar Key as Andrea came ashore farther North of the coastal town.
Some Residents were wary.
"We have been surprised before, with Debby we didn't expect what we got, and there's always the potential for something more than what you want to happen," Seabreeze waitress Donna Miller says.
The Seabreeze flooded during Tropical Storm Debby last year.
Another resident, Wendy Slaughter, lost her business Cedar Key Boat Rentals to Tropical Storm Debby and watched their newly built dock today.
"It's worrisome to see what's going to happen," she says.
Officials weren't as worried about Andrea, however.
Cedar Key Police Chief Virgil Sandlin is optimistic they can avoid extensive damage from Andrea, and stay out of dodge the rest of the season.
"We'll monitor the streets if the tide does come back up but we're good right now," he says.
