Only emergency responders allowed in Kings Point Community

Residents being asked to stay indoors

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - A resident of Kings Point died in floodwater Friday morning inside the Boynton Beach community.

First responders say the man walked into a ditch and drowned. Emergency crews are asking people to stay inside their homes, saying it is difficult to tell where the floodwater is deep.

Tow trucks are fishing out dozens of cars left submerged overnight.

The entrances to the community are closed, only emergency responders and personnel are allowed inside.

Residents spent the morning sweeping out water trying to dry out.

State Senator Maria Sachs toured the area and said the infrastructure didn't work. She says she will head to Tallahassee this weekend to discuss finding a solution.
