MIAMI.- Heavy rains on Monday caused extensive flooding in downtown Miami and the beaches, as well as parts of Broward County.

As a result, several vehicles were stranded amid floodwaters on Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 11th Street, an area that residents say is prone to flooding.

City of Miami officials said they were pumping water from places including Mary Brickell Village, Edgewater, the 55th Terrace and 7th Avenue thoroughfares.

Videos shared on social media showed the mess left by Monday’s rains: cars speeding through floodwaters, drivers pushing their stranded vehicles and people stuck while avoiding deeper water.

The rain triggered a flash flood warning and flood advisories for parts of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

As for the amount of rain, Miami Gardens has topped 4.26 inches of rain since midnight, 3.7 inches at Miami Beach, 3.14 inches at Pembroke Pines and 2.67 inches at Davie.

These conditions with a high chance of rain will continue through at least Friday, so keep an umbrella handy when you go.
