COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Deputies say the water was as high as 2 feet on some of the roads Monday, and come Tuesday - drivers who tried to pass through are now facing some pricey repairs.
So far 7 cars have been taken to one Toyota dealership in Naples, as drivers tried to pass through flooded streets, not realizing just how high the water was.
One woman who called 9-1-1 said, "I'm in a Dodge magnum ma'am. 2005 Dodge magnum. Please, somebody! This is an emergency!"
Complete panic as drivers across Collier County became stranded in their cars as the rain poured down on southwest FLorida, causing streets to flood.
"We're at the corner of Trade Center Way and Airport Rd and Trade Center Way is under water right now with several disabled cars with water over the hood and it's just a real mess," says another women who called 9-1-1.
Some of those cars were taken to one Toyota dealership in Naples, where damage is in the thousands of dollars.
Cars still filled with water are scattered throughout the lot. From hydroplaining to becoming completely submerged, the storm left plenty of drivers with all sorts of damage.
"Flooding, vehicles bumpers falling off, cars don't want to start anymore," says Dion Homer with Germain Toyota in Naples.
Authorities want to remind people that when they do see a flooded street, it's best to avoid it rather than try to go through it. As for all the cars brought to that dealership, we're told all the drivers have insurance.
