Local Area Flooding

Due to the heavy rainfall, several areas of the County are experiencing heavy flooding. Please use caution when heading out today.

Our Utilities and Public Works staff is currently out working throughout the City. If you notice any City of Port Richey lift station alarms going off, please contact: (727) 816-1919.

As a reminder, never drive on flooded roadways or around barricades. Water depth is not always obvious. Just six inches of fast moving water can sweep you off your feet. 12 inches of fast moving water can carry away a small car, and 18-24 inches can carry away most large SUV’s. Be safe, be smart, turn around don’t drown! #floodsafety
