NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - Crews from Lee County are standing by if the area sees more flooding in the next few days. Charlotte County leaders say they have a significant amount of flooding that could drain into Lee County.
Earlier this week, county leaders declared a state of emergency for the area after emergency vehicles couldn't get down flooded roads.
On Thursday, crews dumped truck loads of gravel on several roads, hoping to fill in the deepest holes. Some roads had more than a foot of water.
The flooding caused neighbors' yards to look like lakes and stranded several farm animals.
