A flood warning is in effect in Florida after heavy rain fell in Palm Beach County. SOUNDBITE: Unidentified woman saying: "This rained here harder than I've ever seen it and I've been here and long time and I've never ever seen it rain like this and there are cars broken down all over Atlantic and I was very surprised. Very glad I drive a jeep." At least 30 homes were destroyed but locals say they expect that number to go up. SOUNDBITE: Unidentified Florida resident saying: "It was really bad. I've got six inches of water in the house. I'm going to try to knock it out, dry it out, move the furniture. I've ripped the carpet up so I don't get mold. I'm going to Home Depot right now to see if they can help me out." High water left some roads completely unpassable.
