WELLINGTON, Fla. -- Village leaders in Wellington have requested the help of the National Guard after Tropical Storm Isaac dumped nearly 14 inches of rain in the community.
The rains caused flooding on village streets, forcing some residents to find other means to get home.
Residents say they've seen canals overflow onto the roadways, and some say they've seen flood waters come close to their front door.
Several roads in the village are shut down, including portions of Big Blue Trace and South Shore Boulevard.
Village leaders say the weather has caused some stoplights to stop functioning, so travel through those areas today with caution.
The village is monitoring water levels, and officials say they're maintaining water pumps at maximum levels.
Wellington's Emergency Operations Center has been activated to a Level 2.
