help for jacksonville fl.

Post by slidingforhogs » Fri Oct 07, 2016 10:38 pm

Ha e received couple of calls for possible assistance for airboat rescue ops in the jacksonville area .. This can possibly happen in the morning and have been asked to assemble a team of volume tears with airboat to be ready to spring into action as early as the coming morning.. So if you have the airboat and time to spare please respond .. Thanks mike

Folks this is a serious request ..... I lived up there for quite a few years. The upper St. Johns has two 2' tides twice a day in good times, and because that river flows North it may not return to normal water levels for at least another 3-5 days because of the rainfall South of there. I've seen flooding up there many days past a rain event further South ..... there's a lot of creeks and homes and businesses that will likely be affected by all of this rain. Anyone who can help will I'm sure be much appreciated.

Mike, got a contact phone number?
