Flood clean up begins in Florida Panhandle.

Pensacola-area churches, businesses and residents started to clean up Thursday from this week's torrential downpour that soaked parts of the Florida Panhandle with more than 20 inches of rain.

The storm was part of the weather system that produced tornadoes in other southern states.

Schools in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties were closed, as were the area’s multiple military bases. Roadways, including some spots on Interstate 10 and state Highway 90, were impassable.

Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola and Immanuel Baptist Church in Pace were among the churches that received damage.
