HOSFORD, Fla (WTXL) — Roads are closed near the intersection of Pat Thomas Highway (S.R. 267) and S.R. 20 in Hosford due to flooding.

S.R. 20 is blocked at S.R. 267 in Liberty County due to high water, as well as at S.R. 20 west of Blue Creek Road.

S.R. 267 is also blocked just south of Hopkins Landing Road at S.R. 20 due to high water.

To avoid the flooded roads, the Florida Highway Patrol says to use Geddie Road to get to US-90, then take I-10 and get off at the Gretna/Greensboro exit (mile marker 174) to take S.R. 12 or S.R. 65 to S.R. 20

Troopers are asking drivers to avoid the area.

"The water crossing the roadway is deep enough to sweep your vehicle off the roadway," FHP wrote in a press release.

This is a developing story.
