Vehicle Speeds Through Flooded Miami Street

Flooding persisted in the Miami area into Saturday afternoon, June 4, the National Weather Service (NWS) said, after a storm system dubbed Potential Tropical Cyclone One (PTC One) dropped several inches of rain, leaving many motorists stranded.

Laora Fishman said this footage was taken in Miami on Saturday as she waded through shin-deep floodwaters.

The NWS warned at 11:30 am that the risk for “major flooding” was continuing into the early afternoon as “the last bands associated with PTC One make their way through South Florida.” The wider Miami area was placed under a flood warning until 1 pm, after which the threat was downgraded and a flood advisory was placed in effect up to 2:45 pm.
