The storm sustained tropical gale-force winds as it moved from the east coast into the Atlantic, reports NBC6.

Hours after the storm passed, Miami-Dade County streets were flooded with water and many cars were stranded.

There have been multiple reports of cars being flooded and having to be towed from where they were.

First responders deployed flood rescue vehicles to bring people stranded in the water to safety.

The storm dropped 12 inches of rain on downtown Miami and over 9.5 inches on South Miami.

George Rodriguez told the news crew that one of his cars was completely flooded and he parked his work truck around the corner to protect it from damage.

Severe flooding also found its way into homes.

Hector Costa showed cameras the inside of his flooded garage. Some items were floating in ankle-deep water.

“This is the third time it has happened. We called the city, you know, but nothing happened,” Costa told the outlet.

Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said the storm tested the system of drainage pumps recently installed in the city, US News reports.

“We moved the water away pretty quickly, but of course it was really challenging in some areas,” said Gelber.

“There were passage problems on some roads, one of the main arteries was impassable, but by and large the water is evaporating.”

Miami-Dade County Mayor Danielle Levine-Cava also said the flooding was due to storm drains not working properly, causing water to come back up the drains.

National Hurricane Center forecasters said Sunday morning Alex would experience maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and moving northeast at 14 mph.

The Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1st. This is an unusually early start to the season, but not unprecedented in Florida.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted this season will be “above average” and expects 14 to 21 named storms.

AGATHA RIPS THROUGH MEXICO

Alex was formed from the remnants of Hurricane Agatha, which plowed through Mexico as a Category 2 hurricane.

The coastal town of Puerto Angel in Oaxaca, Mexico, recorded wind speeds of 110 km/h on Monday evening.

At least 11 people have been killed and 20 are missing after the massive storm caused dangerous flooding and mudslides.

Oaxaca Governor Alejandro Murat said rivers burst their banks, sweeping people away from homes while other victims were buried under mud and rocks.

Murat said there were reports of three missing children near the resort town of Huatulco.

“There were two main reasons” for the deaths, Murat told local media.

“There were rivers that burst their banks and on the other side, and worst of all, there were landslides.”
