Several cars and homes are flooded with several feet of water in Lehigh Acres after hurricane Irma passed through Southwest Florida.

"We're on our own little island right here," Amanda Bradley said. "We're stuck. There's not really much we can do."

Her and four kids under the age of six have been stuck inside their home since Irma passed. She finally got family members to come pick up the kids and bring them to Tampa until the flooding is gone.

"I'd rather them be better than me right now," Bradley said.

Four in your corner also saw several cars submerged by water or stalled out because the water is so deep.

Residents in Lehigh are hoping the water drains soon.
