LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Now that Hurricane Irma has moved out of the area, the focus turns to concerns of river flooding.

Meterologist Scott Dorval and Dani Beckstrom say that storm surge is becoming less of an issue and that river flooding is more of a concern.

They take a look at some of the projections for potential record flooding along Horse Creek and the Peace River in the video below.

They say the Caloosahatchee River is running about 2.5 feet above normal.
