Delray Beach in Florida experienced heavy flooding due to a devastating rainstorm. The disaster resulted in two casualties, a man and a woman. Warnings have been issued by weather forecasting experts since the torrential rains are capable of spreading havoc on an unimagined scale.

Abandoned vehicles and waist high floods were the order of the day in Florida. Even the lives of people were put in danger due to the massive deluge of water that came pouring down from the heavens. A 56 year old lady named Elsa Marquez lost her life when her car was inundated by the water. She has left behind five children and a husband named Jorge. 

The authorities say she veered off the road and got caught up in a maelstrom. Meanwhile, a man named Harry Kruelwitz also drowned in the catastrophe. He was 90 years old and was walking with a cane in one hand. He also lost his bearings upon misinterpreting the path he was following. Later on his body was taken to the hospital nearby where he was pronounced dead on arrival. 

The area which has been facing flash floods is collectively known as Palm Beach County. The authorities have sent out notices regarding which safety precautions are meant to be taken by people. To remain indoors is one of the most obvious imperative in such a situation


In flood-like situations only those who can swim have any chance of surviving the onslaught of the wave upon wave of tidal water. Basically, Interstate 1-95 was closed down for a moment and that caused some of the dangerously high levels of rainwater to accumulate in the region.
