MIAMI (WSVN) - The rain in South Florida has caused flooding and traffic delays in downtown Miami.

7News captured footage of flooding in the right lane of Biscayne Boulevard, where it is currently blocked off by barricades, Monday morning.

The flooded right-turn lane is on Northeast 11th Terrace, which leads to the MacArthur Causeway that goes into Miami Beach.

Storms from Sunday also managed to overflow the streets of Miami Beach, Hialeah and Miami Lakes.

Footage showed the backlot of a post office near Lincoln Road and West Avenue.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue reminds locals to be cautious while driving through flooded areas.

“It is never a good idea to drive or walk into flooded areas as water may be deeper than it appears, hiding all types of hazards, like debris [or] sharp objects,” said Erika Benitez of MDFR.

Heavy rainfall also affected areas in Fort Lauderdale where streets on Las Olas Boulevard can be seen covered in water.

Traffic might be backed up later today due to cars avoiding the flooded lanes in downtown Miami.

Street lights are out at Northeast Fourth Street on Biscayne Boulevard, which may also cause heavier traffic.

Drivers have been advised to use caution on the roads.
