Oct. 2nd, 2022 – The City of Bonita Springs continues to advise residents near rivers and canals to keep an eye on the water levels. There is not a mandatory evacuation at this time, however should the levels increase, residents in flood prone areas should take precautions.
Sheet flow, which is a natural phenomenon after a hurricane, can cause rivers and canals to rise. The Imperial River has slowly risen since Hurricane Ian. Residents can access the USGS Daily Data for Florida National Water Information System webpage to check levels of the Imperial River here: https://waterdata.usgs.gov/monitoring-location/02291500/#parameterCode=00065&period=P7D
