The Bay County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) has released a road advisory for July 4.
The public is urged to avoid driving along portions of Front Beach Road. BCSO Deputies on patrol in the unincorporated areas of Panama City Beach report travel conditions along Front Beach Road have become increasingly hazardous due to the weather.
The intersections of Laurie Avenue, Ann Avenue, Dorothy Avenue, and Joan Avenue along Front Beach Road are extremely dangerous due to flooding, with water nearly a foot and a half deep in some areas. Neighboring streets of these intersections are also reported becoming increasingly dangerous.
Bay County has closed a portion of Joan Avenue between North Lagoon and Thomas Drive. No traffic is allowed in that area due to dangerous flooding.
