AVENTURA, FLA. (WSVN) - - Heavy downpours were dumped in areas that have been already saturated by days of rain.

As a precaution, the National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch, Monday afternoon, for all of Broward County and northward into Central Florida, but that has since been allowed to expire.

Rains affected South Florida all day, also including Miami-Dade County.

A 7News camera captured deep water at a gas station in Aventura, at about 186th Avenue, near Dixie Highway, Monday afternoon.

Flooding in these areas caused street closures and traffic delays.

And it wasn’t just Aventura.

Heavy rain came down in Northwest Miami-Dade and Miami Shores was far from dry.

The heavy downpours started at around 9 a.m., which led to street flood advisories for several areas in Miami-Dade County, which have since expired.

Back in Aventura shoppers loaded groceries from the grass.

A piping system in the lot seems to try to move the water out of the lot, but it only flows back in.

“It takes a long time for the puddles, for the puddles to go down,” said Jesse Mizrahi. “They don’t have the right way of bringing down the water.”
