North Casey Key Road, north of 712 North Casey Key Road, has been closed because "severe wave action" has crumbled the road. Sarasota County issued the alert Sunday afternoon but did not say if this was associated with Tropical Storm Cristobal, which was hitting the New Orleans area Sunday afternoon.

"For your safety, avoid this area," the county e-mail states. "County staff is diligently working to notify affected residents and coordinate with Emergency Services."
