Pasco County officials rescue 60 people from flooded homes

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Pasco County officials have rescued more than 60 people from flooded homes in the Hudson area, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

“With today’s weather conditions in Pasco, it is strongly recommended that you stay home and stay off the streets,” the sheriff’s office said. “Do not attempt to drive on flooded roads as they may be deeper than expected or have other unseen hazards.”

MPs said it only takes 6 inches of water depth to cause problems with a car, including stalling or loss of traction.

If you have water in your home, turn off the electricity to avoid fire hazard.

Anyone who needs help evacuating their home should call emergency services.
