TAMPA — Tampa Bay’s Sunshine Skyway, USF, and government buildings have been closed in Tampa preparation for Tropical Storm Colin.

Tropical Storm Colin is expected to make landfall near Tallahassee tonight, but its tropical rains and winds will be felt across the state, including in Orlando and Jacksonville.

UCF closed its campus at 4 p.m. on Monday in preparation of the storm that has already flooded Bayshore Blvd, the street that hundreds of Knights patrolled back in January during Gasparilla.

Several roads and institutions in Tampa have closed their doors as well to brace for the 25-35 mph winds that Colin is expected to bring.

Campus is expected to reopen tomorrow after the storm has passed, but Knight News will keep you informed of any future Tropical Storm updates.
