LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Linda Marcell said her flooded street puts her life at risk. Marcell said she relies on Goodwill to transport her to and from dialysis from her home on Pine Drop Lane.
"If the water is like this on Thursday he's not going to pick me up," said Marcell.
Which means she won't be able to receive dialysis again until the water has receded. Which she said could be Friday or Saturday.
"It's a life situation," said Marcell.
North Fort Myers is no stranger to flooding. Just two weeks ago, the county declared a state of emergency and gravel was brought in to fix up the roads. On Tuesday, the Director of Public Safety for Lee County told WINK News officials are keeping a close eye on the raid and roads, to see if they have to bring in even more gravel over the next few hours.
"We want to make sure that when we do make those repairs that they do at least last the rainy season that's important for us to make sure making some level of progress," said Rob Farmer, the Director of Public Safety.
Gary, another Pine Drop resident wants progress to be made on his street where Wednesday night the flood took over this fire hydrant.
"I think that's a big safety issue because you know if there is a fire, the fire department has to hook up to that. There's like three feet of water right there, so a big safety hazard," said Gary.
