Even though Erika dissipated as a tropical storm over the weekend, Central Florida is still bracing for lots of rain.
And with that rain comes the possibility of flooding.
The Shingle Creek area near the Orange and Osceola County border is particularly vulnerable.
The National Weather Service say Shingle Creek may overflow its banks, so officials are keeping a very close watch on water levels.
After a weekend of heavy rain, with more on the way, Osceola County is offering residents free sandbags today from 8 am to 6 pm.
