Minor coastal flooding was widespread across Florida’s Gulf Coast as winds on the east side of Colin pushed water ashore. A storm surge of close to 3 feet was observed at Cedar Key, FL. Combined with high tide, the surge led to the highest water in years in the low-lying Cedar Key region, flooding a number of businesses and topping the water levels produced by Tropical Storm Debby in 2012
