This iReport is part of an assignment:
Isaac soaks the Gulf coast
Still flooded in West Palm Beach
Day two of flooding in our community of Breakers West in West Palm Beach, and conditions have only slightly improved. The water levels have receded by about 6 inches, but there are still areas under 3 feet of water. The roads are still impassable to non-SUV's. The water is murky, has a slight oder, and continues to allow the fish, snakes, and turtles to swim into driveways. As the water recedes, dead fish are found along lawns. There are not many people going into the water today, only a few teens skim boarding. I ventured out in my SUV today, and snapped a few photos. Neighbors are still unable to leave, and many waved their arms at me as I drove past, asking about the conditions in the neighborhood. Hoping that tomorrow will be dryer! Fingers crossed.
