The area was one of just many dealing with flooding issues after the system came early Saturday morning.

After parts of Miami-Dade County were underwater, the county's Fire Rescue team deployed its flood response assets.

The unit went to the northern part of the county, where heavy flooding made some streets not able to be driven on. MDFR assisted in getting several drivers to safety after their cars got stuck.

MDFR reminds residents it is never safe to drive or walk in flood water and to not underestimate the power of water, as it takes just six inches of fast-moving water to knock over an adult.
