There's a reason flooding is always a possibility when it storms in South Florida.
"Our flood-control system was built over 60 years ago to handle two million people. We now have almost eight million people," says Gabe Margasak, a public information officer for the South Florida Water Management District.
Because of this, in the past six years the District spent about $270 million in upgrades.
The flooding left behind by heavy overnight rainfall in parts of Palm Beach County is more than just a nuisance that closed schools and blocked roads.
Now, it has caused two deaths.
The Palm Beach Post reports that a 56-year-old woman drowned after accidently driving her car from a flooded street straight into a canal. A 90-year-old man died after he fell into a canal while out for a walk.
