MIAMI (WSVN) - South Florida residents and motorists were left dealing with flooded streets and sidewalks because of torrential downpours that swept through the region.

Cars could be seen battling floodwater in the area of Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 23rd Street, Tuesday afternoon.

One resident captured a black SUV wading through the floodwater in front of his home. The resulting wake pushed the water towards the building’s doors and windows, but the ducks in the area did not seem to mind.

A Mini Cooper in the area seemed to encounter electrical issues due to the floodwater, as its lights began to flash intermittently.

Flooding could also be seen in Miami’s Brickell section. However, the floodwater has since started to recede in the area.

Miami Beach saw a total of 5 inches of rain over the past 24 hours, while Miami got soaked with 4 inches of rain. Several cities in Broward County, such as Sunrise and Tamarac, also were soaked with a couple of inches of rain.

A street flood advisory remains in effect for the coastal areas of Miami-Dade County until 10:45 p.m., and a street flood advisory remains in effect for northern Broward County until 10:45 p.m.

One resident of Miami Beach’s Normandy Isle photographed her street inundated with floodwater, and the same was true in Miami Shores, Northeast Miami-Dade and in Fort Lauderdale.

The Florida Department of Health was forced to pause distributing COVID-19 vaccinations at several sites throughout the region due to lightning, forcing workers to seek shelter.

Motorists are advised not to drive through standing water as their vehicles may become disabled.
