Water washed over potted plants and trash cans.
“At some point I thought, ‘Isn’t the car starting to float?
Water was seeping into the lawn in the neighborhood.
“I went out and said, ‘What happened here?’ Yeni Ramos said in Spanish.
Clogged or overflowing drain pipes. Carlos Limont was one of his neighbors who said it was the worst flood he had ever seen.
