University of Florida officials are actively monitoring Tropical Storm Mindy. Here’s what we know today:

Mindy is expected to produce heavy rainfall from the Florida Panhandle into southern portions of Georgia and South Carolina through Thursday morning. This rainfall may produce isolated to scattered flash, urban and small stream flooding.

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for the coast of the Panhandle and Big Bend from Mexico Beach to the Steinhatchee River, which includes coastal portions of Franklin, Gulf, Jefferson, Wakulla, Lafayette and Taylor Counties. A flash flood watch is in effect through Thursday morning for most of the eastern Panhandle and Big Bend region. UF units in the Florida Panhandle should monitor forecasts and be prepared to follow guidance from local officials.

No tropical storm warnings or watches are currently in place for Alachua County, and no operational changes are anticipated for the UF campus in Gainesville. We will continue to monitor and update the UF community on expected impacts or schedule changes as information becomes available.
