Drivers continued driving through the flooded area despite the high water.

Heavy rain also caused flooding on N. Flagler Drive north of Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard.

Video from the scene showed at least one car apparently stalled out after trying to navigate the flooded street.


A car crashed into a flooded ditch in the 4600 block of Gun Club Road. One person in the car said they thought the ditch was part of the road because of the heavy rain, causing them to wreck.

No one was hurt in the crash.

Ample moisture and a weak cold front are expected to trigger numerous showers and a few thunderstorms this afternoon.

The threat of heavy rainfall will continue to pose a threat for flooding into Saturday.
