The storm got stronger after it passed over Pinellas county so the high winds started early this morning after the main part of the vortex was over water. the winds are driving water into Tampa Bay causing abnormally high tides. Bay Shore Blvd. in Tampa is under water.
So far we are fine just some plants were damaged.
The big disaster is a toxic Gypsum stack (an earth walled pond of ph 1 acid waste,) burst open and started draining into Tampa Bay. Aparently an anonymous employee called it in to the news other wise it would not have been noticed. Aparently Gargill the company responsible has known about the leak for about a week. Now they are blaming it on a convenient act of nature. This may kill all of the sea grass in the bay.
Not to mention fish.
