Multiple videos showing the fast-moving water flowing down the streets of downtown Ft. Lauderdale are being shared on Twitter.

A male was caught on camera swimming to safety on a flooded road where vehicles were still driving on Broward Boulevard.

In this video, a man can be seen riding his bike around vehicles with the water completely covering his bike.

Homes in Fort Lauderdale are also flooding. This incredible video taken by ESPN reporter Jeff Darlington shows water rushing by an open door. In his tweet, he shared that multiple neighbors’ homes are flooding, one neighbor’s back porch has collapsed, and tornado warnings are being issued in the Fort Lauderdale area.

The water rushing down the streets is something Floridians are accustomed to seeing during hurricane season.

Wild photos and videos showing the flooding inside and outside of the Fort Lauderdale International Airport are popping up all over social media.

This customer at the Fort Lauderdale Airport had to come back inside the luggage area because the roads were flooded, and now, the airport is beginning to flood.
