Cars stalled, FAU parking lots and breezeways flooded due strong storms

Computer labs were closed for the night as Florida Atlantic University's library experienced flooding during strong storms.

"I walked down the breezeway and I was in high heels and it was up to my calves the whole thing was flooded, people couldn't get around, cars were stalling, it was like tow trucks everywhere," said Danielle Nevarez. 

Storms swept through Boca Raton, blinding drivers and causing them to pull off I-95. 

"Weather was nice and then all of a sudden I come into really bad weather on 95," said Michelle Garland who was driving down from Jacksonville to see her daughter in Boca Raton. "I thought maybe I could get through it, but I mean we can't get through this."

Garland had to pull over in a residential area on Southwest 3rd avenue. The street was completely underwater and cars were stuck at the end of it with their hazards on.

The storms also caused a mess for businesses in Boca. 

"One of the servers came and got me and said there was a waterfall in the kitchen," said Megan DiGesare, assistant General Manager t Saquella Cafe in Boca Raton. 

DiGesare says she had to bring the customers in during the tornado warning. Everyone was safe but there is significant damage.
