JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Photos from a News4JAX viewer showed how bad flooding was in Jacksonville on Thursday.
The footage captured cars underwater at UF Health and major flooding in the Springfield area.
News4JAX spoke with a UF Health spokesperson who said they are dealing with the flooding issues.
News4JAX meteorologist John Gaughan said the rain wasn’t falling at the time -- which means the flooding was a result of the peak downfall.
UF Health is located in the Hogan’s Creek area, which is notorious for flooding.
