    Default Ginnie

    Anyone know conditions at Ginnie Springs? Are they open for diving? Hope everyone in the area came through the weather event well. Bill

    Called them? They have a lot of trees, so don't doubt they could have some damage.

    Called them and got a recorded message that the office is closed. Nothing on the web site, they may be busy. Bill

    Good luck Bill. I am reading Ginnie is closed until September 26th, with a major flooding level of 35.5ft. The last major flood for them in 1998 was 32.2, and that flooded out the whole basin -between Devils and Ginnie

    Kelly I remember standing there in 1998 at the water line looking DOWN at the vent pipe on the bath house. It was my first time there so I didn't understand the magnitude. My shocked instructor was quickly trying to think of plan B for our cavern course! And this could be worse!

    EE posted a message on Facebook saying that Ginnie is closed until 26 Sept. They're apparently anticipating record-breaking peak floods on Thursday...(Floods in excess of 35' predicted for Fort White)
