In the last 48 hours, a deluge of rainfall has besieged Southeast Florida, causing flash floods that have specifically impacted Fort Lauderdale. The downpour resulted in some sections of I-95 becoming inundated with water, causing numerous cars to become submerged.
Fort Lauderdale was pummeled with an astonishing 25.95 inches of rainfall over a two-day period, while Dania Beach experienced 21.42 inches of rainfall. Other neighboring regions also saw significant precipitation, with totals ranging between nine and 20 inches.
