Tropical Storm Eta brought lots of water to what would normally be dry land in Southwest Florida. Many communities were dealing with standing water encroaching on homes Wednesday night, as the storm continued to move north and put other parts of the state under advisories.

Our crews were out and about from Fort Myers Beach and as far north as St. Petersburg — an example of the spread Eta had across the state.

On Fort Myers Beach water was moving up toward businesses, some with water getting into them.
