Several low-lying areas across Tampa Bay likely will experience more flooding as Hurricane Michael moves through the Gulf.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Hurricane Michael's storm surge could bring about an additional 1-3 feet of water on top of normal tide levels.

Residents along the Tampa Bay and Gulf coastlines know this all too well already. Earlier Tuesday afternoon, several low-lying areas flooded out, with roads submerged and most drivers opting not to take their chances.

The tide, all the highs and lows, is a normal phenomenon. A strong system like Hurricane Michael blows in an additional amount of water and worsens the situation.
