Flood Stage

The local rivers made it above flood stage recently with all the rain the panhandle received.

Chipola River at Flood Stage The Chipola River near Florida Caverns State Park just north of Marianna, FL crested at 22.97 feet a week ago. Flood stage is 19 feet. The photo above is of a boat ramp just off the highway. You can see the "Please Don't Litter" sign is partially submerged, but farther down the ramp to the far right is the top of a mostly submerged sign. A park across the road was under several feet of water, the flood waters threatening a building up a small hill.
