"The water was so high the pressure of it pushed the front door open and it started coming in," said John Seymour.
The past couple of days have been a nightmare for John Seymour who lives off of South Street in Fort Myers.
All the rain is clogging ditches in his front yard, leaving that water nowhere else to go but inside his home.
"The worst thing I was worried about was getting shocked. The kitchen was completely under water and the outlet for the stove was down on the floor," said Seymour.
The water destroyed nearly all of their furniture and perhaps the worst part, Seymour just moved in two months ago.
The flooding continues in North Fort Myers as well.
Terry Botma's back yard looks like a mini lake complete with tons of sand. Last night the water made it's way inside and soaked the floors.
Botma claims it's all from the runoff of a shopping strip right behind his back yard.
"I don't know what to think. I have called so many numbers today and one guy passes it off to the next guy," said Botma.
Many of the private roads in Buckingham are covered with at least a foot of water.
Animals are stranded and one man had four goats die because of the water.
People living in many homes are left to stay inside because their cars won't make it through the water.
"My concern also is if ambulances can come down, fire department--because in the past they have deemed this unsafe," said Candy Gonzalez.
