Several South Florida neighborhoods have been flooded as drivers, and residents face the aftermath of tropical storm Eta.
Early Monday morning, cars in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood were able to move slowly through the flooded streets as those who frequent the neighborhood experience post-storm conditions.
7News cameras have captured furniture in the still water along Brickell Avenue and Southeast 13th Street.
Heavily flooded roads were also seen in several towns in Broward County.
The early morning cell phone video showed two women in scrubs getting out of a Mini Cooper that had pulled into the area.
One of the women told 7News that she was upset and upset about this situation on her way to work.
When another car stopped nearby, a man exited the vehicle, took off his shirt, and started pushing his truck off the flooded road.
A nearby Good Samaritan then got out of his carcar to help the struggling man push his car. The Good Samaritan said he did not know this man, but it is right to help.
Two trucks frequented the area and even had to tow a Miami City Police cruiser.
By noon, Brickell was a very different scene as the flood water was pumped out, and the roads were dry again.
Residents of the area could be seen walking, cycling, and running their dogs for an afternoon.
Daniel Hernandez, a resident of theHialeah Gardens area, said he hasn’t seen so much water in the area.
“It was weird because it came and went in waves,” Hernandez said. “Maybe once before but never, like, all of it. “I drove to this place. It was flooded a few times, but I was going on the 28th, and the canals overflow into the street. It is getting ridiculous. “
A Hialeah police officer blocked a nearby road to prevent drivers from driving down the street.
“No one deserves this, but usually, when the streets get flooded, it takes about two days,” Hernandez said.
However, in Miami Gardens, residents still have to deal with stagnant water.
The residents along Northwest 35th Court and 180th Street said the area couldn’t take the rain anymore, or it would get into their homes.
When Ricardo Leyva was interviewed if he was worried about water getting into his house, he said, “If it rains more, yes.”
The banks of a nearby canal have also erupted, causing the flood on the road to turn cloudy, and residents have a hard time distinguishing between the channel and the road.
Cameras have captured the flood water coming to the stairs at the front of houses.
“This is the result that we get from all this,” said resident Javier Vasquez. “I’ve been here 15 years, and this is the first time I see this like this.”
Cynthia Rowe, who has lived in Miami Gardens for 25 years, said she had never seen floodwaters rise to her doorstep.
“I have never seen it like this. Never,” she said. “As I looked outside, I said, ‘Oh, my God, it’s coming up! It’s coming up!'”
Fortunately, Rowe’s house remained dry, but just a few blocks away, Roman Rodriguez let flood water seep into one of his rooms, and his stepfather’s work truck isn’t going anywhere.
In Miami Gardens on NW 170th Street and 22nd Avenue, the water level was even higher as floodwaters rose to the residents’ cars’ trunks.
In northwest Miami-Dade, a canal also flowed into the street, and a flea market in Opa-Locka was flooded.
With the ducks wading through the streets, many play it safe and stay at home.
“I’m stuck. I wouldn’t take my car out there,” Rowe said.
Flooding conditions remained on Tuesday.
SkyForce HD floated above Shula Golf Club in Miami Lakes, which was covered with still water.
Drivers must be extra careful when driving through one of the flooded neighborhoods where they do not know the terrain’s location or the depth of the water.
