Bad Weather Leads to Busy Afternoon for Jacksonville

November 16th, 2006

Empty bays at Station 47 were a common sight for anyone driving past on Thursday. As a powerful storm worked its way up the East Coast, the rain and wind wreaked havoc throughout Jacksonville. Units spent all afternoon responding to reports of trees that had fallen and power lines that were down. In addition, personnel spent a significant amount of time pumping water out of household basements that had flooded due to the incredible amount of rain. Thousands of gallons of water were also pumped out of a large crawlspace at the Carroll Manor Elementary School just before it flooded classrooms. Equipment also responded to multiple fire alarm malfunctions due to the weather.
