Tropical Storm Elsa

PINELLAS COUNTY - At approximately 4:00 a.m. this morning, July 7, 2021, Tropical Storm Elsa’s center passed just off the coast of Clearwater.

Pinellas County deputies monitored conditions throughout the night, including restricting access to the barrier islands.

Pinellas County was fortunate to have not experienced more severe weather as forecasted. No rescues were conducted overnight due to high water or flooding.

Due to improved conditions and Elsa clearing the county over the next hour, deputies will be allowing access to the barrier islands and Pinellas County beaches at 6:30 a.m. this morning.

No injuries have been reported to any citizens or deputies.

At this time, there are no road closures and deputies are currently doing assessments throughout the county and we will provide updates if needed.
