COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Crews are working to pump water out of an East Naples RV park, after yesterday's heavy rains.
One-to-two inches of rain fell in the area of the Hitching Post. Residents say they have been pumping water out since 5:00 p.m. yesterday.
According to the vice president of the Hitching Post, there is a plan in the works to alleviate the problem.
Connie Deane with Lee County said this particular area has been flooding for about 30 years or so, due to it being at sea level. Road maintenance does monitor the area and removes blockage when needed. Deane said this instance of flooding is due to a lot of rainfall in a short amount of time. Deane said she is not aware of a plan to tackle the problem, but that property owners are required to take care of their own storm water problems.
