COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Roads and businesses in Naples are drying out from flooding in much of the city yesterday. The flooding made it nearly impossible to drive in much of Naples. Cars got stuck and thousands of people were without power.
One area that was heavily hit was Mercantile Avenue and Airport-Pulling Road. Camp Bow Wow, in that location, is a 24-hour camp for dogs and according to the owners, the parking lot was filled with four to five inches of water yesterday.
The doggie outside play area has astro turf and the owners say it flooded so much, that the squares started to float away. In pictures from yesterday, you can see inside the lobby there was five inches of water and the doggie play area and the area where the dogs sleep flooded.
Staff were forced to put the dog's bedding on top of the crated area. They also put thunder shirts on a lot of the dogs because they were so anxious.
Many pet owners couldn't come get their dogs because the Sheriff's Office put out an alert asking people to stay home.
The business owners stayed late last night, bought wet-dry vacs and about a dozen fans that they put in the business to dry everything out. Their insurance company can't come out until tomorrow to look at the damage because they have so many calls in the area, but Camp Bow Wow is open for business today.
