Delray Beach Flooding Results in Two Casualties

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
