BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. — Heavy downpour across Southwest Florida has caused flooding to areas of Bonita Springs.

Monday morning, Mango Drive residents stepped outside of their homes to floodwater overflowing drainage ditches and city streets.

A homeowner that requested to talk off camera says they expected it after several problems in the past with drainage.

“Oh, definitely every time it rains, and even if it only rains for about 20 minutes. When this starts drying out and gets very humid and hot, a lot of frogs and bugs will come out and it starts to stink," says the Mango Dr. homeowner.
