Inmates at a Florida prison and residents in the surrounding community were evacuated over concerns about the potential collapse of a local reservoir.

Approximately 345 inmates, a third of the inmate population at the Manatee County Center Jail, were moved over the weekend amid fears that potential flooding could leave the first level of the prison with anywhere from 1 feet to 5 feet of water. The prison moved the inmates whose cells were on the first floor, and although they originally planned to cram them in with the other inmates, they decided to move them to a different site.

The article goes on to state the following:

The prison also moved the medical wing to a higher floor to avoid any potential flooding.

Officials have said that anyone near the old phosphate plant at Piney Point is urged to leave the area.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Sunday, “What we’re looking at now is trying to prevent, and respond to if need be, a catastrophic flood issue.”

DeSantis tweeted Sunday, “Today I joined state officials in Manatee County who are actively responding to Piney Point and deploying all necessary resources. Please follow @FLSERT and @FLDEPNews for updates and monitor local alerts and evacuation orders.”
