Watch: Cars swim through sewage water as heavy showers lash Florida

Several parts of Florida bore the brunt of heavy showers in the region with Tropical Storm Alex making its notorious presence felt in major cities. Downtown Miami was particularly hit with incessant rainfall which resulted in roads going under and sewage channels overflowing. It was, needless to say, an absolute nightmare for the few who ventured out in their vehicles.

According to local reports, several parts of the US state have been put on flood alert. Tampa Bay CBS station reported that fire fighting teams had to be called in to rescue trapped motorists from their vehicles. Tow-truck services were also running overtime to pull vehicles to safer locations.

Scenes in downtown Miami were quite apocalyptic with one video posted on Twitter showing a Corvette somehow wading through bonnet-deep water. Overflowing sewage lines have further worsened matters.
