Driver slams into fire hydrant, causing flooding & delays on Fort Myers Beach
FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. — A car that slammed into a fire hydrant caused a major water leak on Fort Myers Beach on Memorial Day, officials said.
The flooding stopped both directions of traffic near the Big Carlos Pass on Estero Boulevard for over half an hour. Some people were seen getting out of their cars while waiting on the bridge.
Officials with the Town of Fort Myers Beach said that water pressure in the town was reduced from 8350 Estero Blvd to Island Ends, including Estrelita.
A white SUV with front end damage was seen in the area where the flooding was coming from.
It’s not known if the flooding has since subsided.
