Heavy rain on both sides of the Bay triggered flood warnings yesterday. Hillsborough County responders had to rescue at least four people from flood areas, and sandbags were given out. Heavy rains are possible again today.

Victims of Hurricane Harvey are getting some additional help from crews from the Bay area. Fire Department crews with specialized water training along with local power company employees also headed up yesterday, along with the Red Cross and the Salvation Army. You can help the victims of Harvey here with a donation to the Red Cross. There have been at least ten deaths attributed to the storm.

It’s primary day in St Petersburg, Polls open at 7 am and close at 7pm. Residents are voting for the top two spots for Mayor to go on to the November election along with District 6 City Council seats.

PETA is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of whomever dumped a dog in the middle of a busy road in Seminole Heights and then just took off. That dog tried to chase the car and then ran into the woods and has not been seen since. For the full story and where to report information check the Tampa Bay Times.

That water main break will continue to keep the westbound lanes of Fletcher Ave from 75 to Telecom Parkway closed for some time. When that main broke it actually formed a cavern under the street.
