Floodwaters affect Tamarac preschool
TAMARAC, Fla. (WSVN) -- Tropical Storm Isaac has definitely left its mark, leaving many areas flooded across South Florida.
In Tamarac, there was still a lot of standing water from Tropical Storm Isaac, Monday afternoon.
The playground at Tamarac Preschool Academy was flooded because of Isaac's rain waters, and tons of water gushed into the school. "We sandbagged the doors, but the water came over the sandbags," said school director Elizabeth Kokocinski.
At least an inch of water stood in the corridors of the preschool and left rugs and toys around the school soaked. Kokocinski said, "I don't think anybody here anticipated this much rain."
Meanwhile, in Davie, Isaac's wind caused some damage. A huge tree crashed on top of Scot Punancy's truck. "I thought maybe a limb broke off, but then I looked around the corner and saw half of the tree was cut off," he said.
The downed tree had previously survived Hurricane Andrew and a car crash.
Trees blocked South Florida roads, and standing water in the area proved to be a hassle for cleanup crews.
Crews are now pumping out the floodwaters from Tamarac Preschool Academy.
