Flooding remains a concern in The Acreage

THE ACREAGE, Fla.-- More rain is on the way for South Florida, including parts of Palm Beach County.

The news comes just a day after some communities were hit by severe weather, including tornadoes seen in Belle Glade and The Acreage. The severe weather was spurred by Tropical Storm Andrea, the first storm of the 2013 hurricane season.

The severe weather seen in The Acreage brought strong winds up to 100 miles per hour, a tornado and lots of rain.

A day after the storm, meteorologists predict even more rain, and urge residents in flood prone areas to be on alert.

In The Acreage there is still a lot of standing water left over from Thursday's storm.

Outside Cornerstone Fellowship church at the corner of 140th and Orange Blvd rain water fills both sides of the entrance to the church.

Drivers who need to use 130th Trail North temporarily need to take an alternate route to get to where they're going because the dirt road is closed due to standing water.

This community is familiar with flooding. Last year, Tropical Storm Isaac dropped more than twenty inches of rain on The Acreage. This led to days worth of flooding. Residents got aid from local agencies until the waters receded .
