Shoal River is forecast to reach flood stage at 12:00am on Thursday, according to the City of Crestview. The river is then expected to rise to 25 feet by Friday morning.
At this time, flooding is expected to impact trailers north of the Okaloosa Corrections Institute, and homes on Sowel Road, Trevor Court, and Antioch Road.
“Residents are asked to remain vigilant as protective actions will need to be taken,” said the city in a press release. “Those needing to evacuate are urged to seek accommodations with friends, or family members, in locations away from flood zones.”
