Photos: Heavy Rain Causes Highway 97 Flooding

June 30, 2016

Heavy downpours Wednesday afternoon in the Davisville and Atmore area caused street flooding.

On Highway 97 in Davisville, just south of the Alabama/Florida state line, southbound drivers were welcomed to Florida with flooding in the southbound lane. At least one driver lost control and ran off the roadway.

On Highway 31 east of Atmore near Florida Highway, heavy rain led to an accident with injuries. There was no word on the severity of the accident (bottom photo).

    I’ve never noticed flooding in that spot before. Has there been any regrading recently?
