The Sunshine Skyway Bridge remained closed Monday afternoon as Tropical Storm Debby continued to bring heavy rain and high winds into the area, creating a big headache for Manatee County drivers.

More storms were expected to move into the county during the afternoon.

There was reported damage off Anna Maria Island, and the city pier had been closed. There were also reports of some coastal flooding areas.

For emergencies, head to the Manatee County Emergency Services site or call them at (941) 747-3011.
