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.
