A flood advisory was issued by the National Weather Service at 7:56 a.m. Tuesday Sept. 7, for Live Oak and surrounding counties due to Tropical Storm Hermine.

Radar confirmed a band of showers, with heavy rainfall, rotating at the center of the storm.

In Three Rivers, at the North Live Oak Little League Field, two utility poles snapped in half and fell over during the storm. However, both of the poles previously had signs of decay.

In certain areas of Live Oak County, callers complained they were without electricity for 15 hours due to downed power lines.

Rainfall rates were one inch per hour with additional rainfall amounts of one to two inches.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall caused elevated levels on small creeks and streams and ponding of water in some areas.

Prior to the storm, area fish headed toward inlets. This made the first clearing wind after the storm a great time to fish for some such as Brooke Schroeder of George West.
