FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- In St. Lucie County, like elsewhere around South Florida, it appears that we dodged the worst of Hurricane Irma. But there are still plenty of reminders that it was here, including flooding.

Much of the Creekside neighborhood in Fort Pierce is flooded. A few of the homes seem to be inaccessible as they are surrounded by water.

Monday morning St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara reminded the public that they should wait until the "all clear" signal is given and remain in shelters and stay off of the roads.
