COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Some residents who live near Forest Lakes Boulevard and Quail Forest Boulevard say when it floods, they're forced to stay inisde.
"Most people don't go riding around unless you gotta go to work or something," said Kathy Kennedy.
Kathy Kennedy said she doesn't have any other way to get around the flooded intersection.
"We don't have a canoe or anything, we just ride down the middle of the street. What else can you do?" said Kennedy.
After Wednesday night's rain storm, people expected their streets to look just like this.
"Everytime it rains, the same spots. And it'll last like this for a couple days and then it'll go down and then it'll rain again and it'll go up again and down again."
The county said it's working to check swales and weer's along with the South Florida Water Management District. But a spokesperson said a Municipal Taxing Unit oversees this area and they tax themselves, then use that money for whatever changes they want to make.
But for many, there's a fear of what will happen if it keeps raining before the water dries up.
"The sewers are all supposed to be real good, I don't know what happened. It sucks anyway."
