Cape Coral residents struggle with flooding before Hurricane Elsa

CAPE CORAL, Fla. — People living in parts of Cape Coral are struggling with flooding and standing water ahead of Hurricane Elsa. 

Caitlin Shepherd says her neighbor called her on Thursday, saying her trash cans were floating down the street. 

“I got home and the whole street was flooded,” Shepherd said. “My driveway, half my driveway was underwater. Half my yard was underwater. And since it’s rained all week it’s just progressively getting worse.” 

Some neighbors are concerned about runoff from nearby construction on Burnt Store Road near Pine Island Road.

As we head into the next week and Elsa continues to develop, residents wonder how bad the flooding could get when the hurricane hits.

Shepherd said she hopes the city is looking into solutions. 

“I know…we live in the swamp, we’re in Cape Coral but this sitting water just for long periods of time, I just feel like there’s a better solution,” she said.
