Ian’s rains flood San Marco streets, but business and homes are spared

Flooding is not nearly as bad as it has been for people who live and work there

Heavy rains from Ian brings flooding to San Marco

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Anytime it rains heavily in Jacksonville, you can bet San Marco will experience flooding. Ian’s heavy rains are no exception --flooding is happening in the streets of San Marco. Lasalle Street looks like a river Thursday.

Water has not reached the homes and the hope is that it won’t. Sandbags lined San Marco businesses, clearly they know what to do when heavy rain hits the area.

So far, the flooding from Ian is not nearly as bad as it has been in past hurricanes. Hurricane Irma devastated many homes and business in the San Marco and forced evacuations in 2017.
