VERNON, Fla. (AP) -- Heavy rains in the Florida Panhandle have flooded roads and nearly a dozen buildings.

Washington County officials say nearly a dozen buildings in Vernon were flooded Thursday. The rising waters prompted emergency managers to move an emergency shelter from the Vernon High School to the county's agricultural center in Chipley.

Authorities also closed all dirt roads in the county early Thursday due to the excessive rainfall.

The rains also have prompted officials across the Panhandle to cancel or reschedule Fourth of July festivities and fireworks.
