MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Thunderstorms across Miami-Dade County left many areas flooded.

It’s quite the soggy start to the weekend. In Little Havana on NW 8th Terrace near NW 17th Avenue, some people have been stuck home all day, scared to drive through the flooded streets.

“No white hair, now I have white hair,” says Mehri Eshghy, a woman who lives on NW 8th Terrace. She spent the day inside after excess water nearly caused her to fall while taking out her trash this morning.

“Water was up to my knees,” says Eshghy.

Outside of Loan Depot Park cars sent water flying as they drove down flooded streets. On US-1 and 32nd Avenue it was a similar sight as drivers began their morning commute to work. In Aventura, shopping centers and roadways were covered in water.

“Lots of strong rain. A lot of water on the street,” says Roberto Paris, a Little Havana resident. “The city has to fix it,” he says.

Miami’s Public Works Director says they have between 10 and 12 crews out today working to alleviate the flooding.

“I have damage in one room in the back and from the ceiling. Leaking water in the room,” says Paris.

We also spoke with Commissioner Joe Carollo who says flooding is a county-wide problem and one that’s not easy to fix.

“We’re going to see if we can come next week to see if we can use our pump trucks to clean the sewage out because sometimes debris might be in there. That particular area, NW 8th Terrace, from the way I’ve looked at it, it’s going to require more,” says Carollo.
