GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) - After being hard hit by major flooding in April, the Panhandle town of Gulf Breeze is working to reduce its flood risks.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/1seQ8TX ) reports that the city is moving forward with many ideas suggested by a taskforce created after major flooding throughout the area in late April.

The city has contracted with engineer firms for one project designed to eliminate the need for pumping stations at a local high school and another project to improve drainage at a medical center.

These projects are just two on a list of 25 short-term and immediate actions the task force recommended.

Heavy rains caused damaged throughout the city and left some neighborhood streets under water.
