Flooded roads cause problems for drivers
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Every car that drove by Carolyn McMillan's home made her nervous on Thursday afternoon.
"It worries me because when they go by this fast - they think it's fun, but waves are coming up and water is coming into my house," McMillan told Action News.
She lives on Debutante Drive, off Atlantic Boulevard. The heavy, non-stop rain caused the road to flood. Around the corner, two kayakers took advantage of the flooded streets.
But several cars that took a chance and tried to drive through the large puddles ended up stalling. Tow truck companies were busy rescuing all the stranded drivers.
"It's too much rain too fast," says Debbie Peterson. "It's all the way up to my house, in my carport and everything."
Back at Carolyn McMillan's home, she tried to round up some traffic cones to warn drivers to slow down.
"I just have to get out there and tell them to slow down please because it's washing my garden away."
