In Naples, Florida, on Wednesday afternoon, Lauren Barlow watched as water crept in through her home’s door and began rising across the first floor.
“Cars are floating down our street,” Barlow, who was sheltering on the upper level of the house, told CNN. “Our garage completely flooded, frying our cars. The water then started to go through the door inside and is now quickly rising up the steps flooding the first floor.”
Nearby, the city’s fire rescue authorities posted a video on Facebook Wednesday evening walking through cold, chest-deep water as they rescued an individual from the rushing waters.
