Gulf Power was working early Sunday morning to restore power for hundreds of residents across Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties.

Following a strong thunderstorm system that caused numerous power outages and substantial flooding of roads overnight, Round II is expected to hit the area by the early evening hours Sunday.

The National Weather Service is reporting that thunderstorms are expected again today. An isolated strong to severe storm is possible this afternoon into tonight. Strong to damaging winds will be associated with the storm system and small hail is possible. NWS did note that organized severe weather is not expected.

Gulf Power crews were working Sunday morning to restore power for hundreds of residents in several areas across Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties.

The most concentrated area of residents without power was near DeFuniak Springs, where Gulf Power was reporting 380 homes without electricity. Crews were working to repair transformers damaged by the strong overnight thunderstorms in Navarre, Mary Esther, Fort Walton Beach, Lake Lorraine Gardens near Shalimar, several areas along State Road 85 south of Crestview, DeFuniak Springs and a rural area in north Okaloosa County near the Alabama state line.

CHELCO crews also were working Sunday morning to restore electricity. The biggest outage reported by CHELCO affected 23 residents near County Road 395, 12 residents near Bob Sikes Airport and 8 residents in the Cedar Log Lake Road area.

Additional rain over area coastal counties may again cause localized nuisance to minor flooding. This current weather pattern will continue through Wednesday. The next sunny day in the extended NWS forecast is Thursday.

Moderate onshore winds and long periods of swell will combine to create a high risk of rip currents on area beaches through Sunday night.
