Current Condition of the City
Potential Impacts from Rising Levels in Lake Toho
The City of Kissimmee has released a map that provides a visual reference for residents to identify areas bordering or close to Lake Toho that may be affected by rising lake levels. The map identifies any area at or below the same elevation Lake Toho is expected to reach and does not reflect any guarantee that such areas would see flood waters.
The City asks residents to review the map and take any necessary action to keep themselves, families, and property safe as we continue monitoring water levels. If residents need to evacuate, the Osceola Heritage Park shelter (pet-friendly) is open.
We ask residents to stay alert for any evacuation orders. Flooding may be expected to peak from October 7 to 12. If your street floods, it may restrict access to and from your home. Some structures may experience water intrusion. Officials advise you to prepare your home in case of possible flooding and to consider moving to a safe location, especially if you have any medical concerns and may require assistance.
While flood waters continue to recede around the City, some areas still see flooding. The City is working closely with Osceola County Emergency Management to make assistance available to affected residents and businesses.

SunRail suffered significant infrastructure damage due to the storm. Service in Osceola County will be suspended for at least the next several weeks as they work on repairs.
A bus bridge between Kissimmee stations and the Meadow Woods SunRail station will be in place until normal service is restored.
Residents and visitors are urged to avoid venturing onto flooded roadways – many of which are still impassable. We’ve seen plenty of vehicles getting stuck. Osceola County continues to update their map of road closures Osceola.org.
