Flood Possibility Extended For Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) While we think it is unlikely that you’ll pass Noah on Glades Road this morning (possibly someone named “Noah” in a Lexus, but not *the* “Noah” in an ark), it was quite a night throughout Boca Raton and south Palm Beach county. Heavy rain, lightning and thunder continued through the early morning hours.

There is now a flood warning in effect through mid morning:

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AT NIGHT WHEN IT IS HARDER TO RECOGNIZE THE
DANGERS OF FLOODING. WITH FLOODED ROADWAYS AND THE NUMEROUS CANALS
ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA…IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE WHERE THE
ROAD ENDS AND WHERE THE CANAL BEGINS.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE
ROADWAY. THE WATER DEPTH MAY BE TOO GREAT TO ALLOW YOUR CAR TO CROSS
SAFELY. MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND.
