Due to Tropical Disturbance 90L’s intense rains, the National Weather Service Office in Miami has declared a Flash Flood Emergency for the counties of Broward and Miami-Dade. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has named the disturbance Invest 90L. It has caused extensive flooding and major damage throughout Florida.

A significant amount of rain—more than 12 inches in some places—has overloaded drainage systems and flooded highways, forcing authorities to close a section of Interstate 95 close to Dania Beach. Due to standing water on the runways, Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has experienced significant delays and cancellations.

A potential tornado in Martin County damaged Hobe Sound, causing power outages and obstructed roadways. In Fort Myers, further south, first responders performed a dramatic water rescue of a guy who was stranded inside a sinking SUV.

As the storm continues to dump massive downpours across the region, residents are asked to stay inside and avoid making needless travel. The disturbance is expected by the NHC to proceed northeastward along the Southeast coast, possibly becoming stronger when it crosses the Atlantic.
