Historic Flooding: Lake Worth Spillway gushing with Isaac's flood water

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - There is proof that water is heading back out to the ocean after Isaac. It is gushing through the Lake Worth Spillway. But along with all of the water, comes a lot of trash. Tuesday morning crews were trying to fix the boom that keeps debris from spilling into the intra coastal and out into the ocean.

"I haven't seen it open like this in a long, long time. I've been coming here 40 years and there's a lot of water coming through here," Bill Hiltner said.

The high water makes it tough to fish. But you might spot some wildlife. Hiltner said when flood waters come through, so do alligators and otters!
