    Rabbi Zev Katz has a big problem of rain damage at the Chabad House on Miami Beach.

    A roofer was checking out where the rain poured in during rain storms on Thursday.

    "We have to wait til it dries up and maybe Monday we can look at the roof," Katz said.

    Rain spilled into the main social area of the center, but no matter what, Shabbat dinner will be served Friday night.

    The beach was hit hard with over four inches of rain starting from Tuesday morning.

    The drainage pipes worked well at low tide but were submerged at high tide, which drove water into the neighborhood where Pearl Goldblatt, her rabbi husband and five kids just moved in.

    "We just live a couple of blocks down the street. We never had anything like this and we moved in and water was like knee deep," she said.

    On Friday there was still water in the remodeled garage.

    Goldblatt had a plea to share: "Can we get this drainage fixed? Can we work out this problem for everybody?"
