Recent heavy rains across the region have caused the Little Manatee River at Wimauma to rise into minor flood stage. The river is expected to crest at 11.6 feet by tomorrow morning, then begin receding below flood stage by Friday afternoon. We will closely monitor the water level over the next several days for any additional rise in water levels.
