Dashcams captured some pretty terrifying moments as the water levels rose last night around Tampa Bay. They show driver’s navigating Bay area roads carefully as Tropical Storm Eta passed through the area.
We would love to see your photos from what you experienced during Eta. Share them here to be included in our community gallery!
The first video shows waves crashing over the edge of the Howard Frankland Bridge. This was taken on the northbound side heading into Tampa.
The water also forced the closure of the eastbound side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Eastbound sides are still closed as of Thursday (11/12) morning.

The eastbound lanes of the Courtney Campbell are covered in debris from overnight and remain closed at this time. It likely will be several hours before they can be cleaned up and reopened. pic.twitter.com/wjHOcZn0eL— Clearwater Police Department (@myclearwaterPD) November 12, 2020
And there was also flooding along Bayshore Boulevard and the Riverwalk in Tampa.
Some of Tampa’s most incredible hurricane photos…
Remember when the water along Bayshore Boulevard disappeared during Irma?
