Escambia County storm damage

ESCAMBIA COUNTY  --  In Escambia County the heavy downpours quickly left some roads impassible.

At Garden and "L" in Pensacola, trash cans washed into the street and the intersection was filled with several inches of water.
Fairfield Drive, Massachusetts Avenue, New Warrington Road, and Ninth Avenue all had flooding problems during the storm.

The combination of strong winds and soggy ground toppled some trees.
Near the corner of Lloyd Street and 19th Avenue the big oak blocked the road  and took out some power lines.

Janel Mack:  "The rain and wind was so loud that I didn't hear a whole lot coming. All I heard was one big boom and was pretty surprised to come see the tree down."
About a block away, more power lines down at 18th and Brainerd after another tree fell across the road.
