Gallery: Tropical Storm Eta floods Tampa Bay streets

Hurricane Center

TAMPA (WFLA) — Areas around Tampa Bay saw their fair, or unfair, share of flooding Wednesday night as Tropical Storm Eta unleashed heavy rain and strong winds in the area.

In a Wednesday evening advisory, the National Hurricane Center warned about the combination of dangerous storm surge and high tide. The NHC said the combination will cause β€œnormally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.”

The area saw popular roadways and landmarks flooded during the storm — like Gulf Port, Bayshore Boulevard and the Courtney Campbell Causeway to name a few.

Here are a collection of videos and images from the flooding that occurred Wednesday night around Tampa Bay.

“Sucks. Just got that car a few months ago too. Probably totaled now thanks to storm surge,” Facebook follower Cameron Decker said.
