Scattered Weekend Flash Flooding Across Florida

ORMOND BEACH, FL -- A combination of king tides and thunderstorms brought flooding to parts of Florida's east coast, while an isolated storm caused rising water on Florida's west coast Saturday.

The National Weather Service has posted coastal flood advisories for most of Florida's east coast this weekend, from coastal Miami-Dade and Broward counties to the Jacksonville area.

In coastal areas of Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, a flood watch is posted through Sunday evening. The National Weather Service says flash flooding from excessive rainfall is possible.

Farther north, that sort of flooding has already been taking place. Ormond Beach received more than six inches of rain Saturday as storms soaked Volusia County. Brevard County is also experiencing heavy rainfall this weekend.

On the other side of the peninsula, a storm soaked North Port and Port Charlotte, with some areas receiving several inches of rain Saturday afternoon. Firefighters checked on several cars inundated ny flooding, as well as a home damaged by a fire caused by a lightning strike. No injuries reported from any of those incidents.
