WPTV anchor Mike Trim was unable to get out his neighborhood until 5:30 a.m. because of flooding at Sandy Run and Jupiter Farms roads.

There is other flooding in the neighborhoods around 159th Court North and Jupiter Farms Road. 

Radar estimates show Jupiter Farms received 5.9 inches of rain in the last 48 hours. 

Trim has lived in the neighborhood for about four years and said he had never seen flooding to this extent.

Drivers are navigating the flooded streets at a slow pace. Area residents should use caution on their morning commute. 

The Palm Beach County School District said they did not have transportation problems in Jupiter Farms.

Flood waters were starting to recede by 11 a.m., but many streets still had water covering them.
