After evacuating Alafia River floodwaters, a resident returns home

The sun was just setting Wednesday when Justin Lyons guided the front of his kayak onto his front porch. After evacuating from Alafia River floodwaters in the middle of the night Tuesday, Lyons needed to see first-hand the damage in his home. Inside, soda bottles, cans of bug spray and personal possessions floated in the calf-deep water. A refrigerator lay flipped on its side. The overpowering smell of sewage made Lyons gag. “There’s not much I’m afraid of but this is hard,” he said. “Its scary not knowing where you’ll be and what is happening.” (Sept. 14, 2017) Video provided by Justin Lyons
