"I think, district-wide, we may be looking at one of the top five wettest Octobers," said Randy Smith, a spokesperson for the South Florida Water Management District.
Water levels at Lake Okeechobee continue to rise.
"That's a very good thing," said Smith. "Water back-up source [is] very low, so it's encouraging."
This is a much different story from last October, one of the driest - if not the driest - on record, which made for challenges.
"What you see are stricter restrictions and that's uncomfortable for people," said Smith.
Water Management officials say we're in good shape and have rebounded from a huge deficit, but there are concerns moving forward.
They say the bottom line now is to welcome the H2O and conserve it when we can.
