Tropical Storm Eta slammed into South Florida on Sunday night bringing high winds and "life-threatening" flash floods to heavily populated areas after it made landfall in the Florida Keys.
Cars were stranded and entire neighbourhoods were swamped as floodwater rose with no place to drain.
The system’s wide reach and heavy rains posed a serious threat across South Florida, an area already drenched from more than 14 inches of rain last month.
Eta could dump an additional 6 to 12 inches, forecasters said.
“In some areas, the water isn’t pumping out as fast as it’s coming in,” warned Miami Dade Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz.
The National Hurricane Center warned on Monday that the flash flooding was "life-threatening."
