Afternoon storms brought flooding to parts of Fort Myers Friday. WINK News viewers submitted videos and pictures of some of the flooding.

Below, vehicles carefully, one by one, slog through heavily flooded Fowler Street. The water is so deep that the vehicles create waves.

Below the front wheels of the car in the foreground are barely visible. While the wheels on the car in the background can’t be seen at all.

In the picture below you can’t see the street under all of the water. A toppled garbage can, a blue container floating away, and a street submerged by the rapid rainfall.

An outdoor area became flooded by the rain to appear as a very shallow lake. The small foliage, inside what looks to be a bird bath, now looks like a moat.
