Threat of rain worries Pasco residents

PASCO COUNTY, FL (WFLA) – The sun has been shining on Pasco County for much of the day, giving a ray of hope to people whose homes have been inundated with water following the area’s recent floods.

Amy Murray’s house in New Port Richey is one of the ones that still has water inside. And the threat of more rain isn’t making things any better.

“There is no where else for the water to go…once this rain starts again it is just going to be ongoing, they told it is going to be 30 days until my house drys out period because of this right now, so when the new rain hits it is going to be pretty bad,” Murray said.

The hard-hit Bass Lake area still has neighborhoods that are flooded, including Deborah Centella’s.

“The water has not gone down enough for us to not be concerned not fast enough especially with more rain coming” Centella said.

Centella can only hope any rain won’t be nearly as much as it has been over the past two weeks.

“It is very scary, I don’t even want to know, I really don’t, I don’t even want to know because as it is receding and Ii am just afraid that all that is going to come back up,” Centella said.

Brent Phillippi”s home is safe, but not his neighbors across the street, who he feels for right now.

“I could see the concern on his face, you just don’t want water, that dirty water too,” Phillippi said.

And indeed it is dirty water that you really wouldn’t want inside your home much less in your yard. At this point, all people here can do is prepare for whatever may be coming their way. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
