HERNANDO COUNTY - All areas along the coast of Hernando County are closed to access due to rising waters and a second round of storm surge later this afternoon. Homeowners are being turned away at checkpoints.
Officials expect a high tide at 1:25 p.m. today, which will make conditions worse along the coast.
WREC has disconnected power to the regions, in an effort to prevent fires and danger of electrocution.
