Sawgrass Mills mall closed because of flooding

The Sawgrass Mills mall in Sunrise is closed Wednesday because of flooding, police said.

Local 10 News spoke to Sunrise residents who were shocked by the flooding from all the recent rain.

"I've lived here 13 years and never seen this before," one resident said.

A woman who parked her car at the mall Tuesday was surprised to see what had become of it when she returned.

"My car is stuck underwater," she told Local 10.

Nearby at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, people could be seen trudging through the flooded parking lot barefoot.

Sunrise police advise drivers to use extreme caution when navigating through flooded areas.
