NAPLES, Fla — Thunderstorms this afternoon into evening brought heavy rain to some of our coastal communities including in Naples and southeast Collier County. That heavy rainfall triggered a flood advisory until 5:30pm with widespread radar estimates ranging from 2 to 3 inches of rain. That rainfall in combination with a shallow water table and over saturated ground from Hurricane Ian and recent afternoon storms, caused flooded roadways including on Gulfshore Blvd. Naples Fire-Rescue Department is asking the public to stay off the roads right now. Also remember do not drive through flooded roadways. The general rule is turn around, don't drown.
