Rain

There’s an old song we used to sing as a kid, ‘Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.” Unfortunately, that day looks like it’ll be here sooner rather than later.

Below is some video of the heavy rain as it blew through Indian River County about 1:30 PM.

In the meantime, much of Florida is under a “Tornado” Watch until 5 PM this afternoon.
