FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Thunderstorms roared through Broward and Miami-Dade counties on Thursday afternoon, bringing rain, wind and some damage.
Water gushed from a drain in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood. The flooding damaged several parked cars. A man kayaked through the murky water. Some drivers got stuck in the flood.
A tree temporarily blocked a road in West Miami-Dade, and another tree crashed down on Chris Wintter’s parked Audi in Fort Lauderdale, creating a loud enough sound that it sent people running.
A pair of workers held on for dear life in a scaffolding that was swinging against a tall building in Sunny Isles Beach. Fences and screens collapsed and caved in flapping in the wind at homes in Hialeah.
Power lines have also gone down. Florida Power & Light says about 1,300 customers in Miami-Dade and almost 1,100 in Broward have lost power.
