33 people were rescued in Pinellas County as Tropical Storm Eta flooded Florida.

As per the reports, Eta brought high winds, high tides, and flooding across Pinellas County, especially in the Pass-a-Grille area in south St. Pete Beach and north to Madeira Beach.


Sherrif’s Office said deputies rescued nearly three dozen people from homes and roadways. Fortunately, no injuries were reported at the time. Reports say deputies used chainsaws to remove fallen trees and branches from roads.

However, Eta caused one death in Florida when a victim was electrocuted after water got into their Bradenton home. Emergency officials warned residents to take extra precautions when standing water or flooding is present
