JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tropical Storm Andrea eased the First Coast in slowly to what could be a very active hurricane season this summer.
Flooding is no surprise to people who live along McCoy Road. Part of the road was shut down because of the water. But people who live in the area say Andrea was a good wakeup call that the weather is coming.
Tropical Storm Andrea put a damper on the Crowleys afternoon.
"It's flooded bad. I thought we were going to go to the park today, clear off the slide and swings, it's not going to happen, haha," said Danielle Crowley.
But with four kids cooped up inside all day, it's not nearly as bad as mom Danielle imagined.
"Inside, not coming out all day. But it looks a little better than we thought it would be," she said.
Still, living along McCoy Creek, she didn't take the weather warnings lightly, and she and her kids were prepared for the worst.
"Make sure you have the proper water, food, whatever it is you can't go out and get. Make sure you have it prepared inside your house," she said.
She might have been prepared, but Danielle said they're lucky Andrea eased them in to hurricane season.
"It's a lot of getting used to, I've never seen this much water in one spot," she said.
