The cleanup continued Wednesday morning on Miami Beach after heavy downpours Tuesday night left high water on the roads and people stranded. Most of the physical work when it comes to cleaning up has been handled and the streets are cleared, thanks to restoration workers. But some storm drains were left clogged after the heavy rain and, emotionally, many residents are still dealing with the mess. "I’ve never seen this before," Valerie Navarrete said. "I’ve never seen this before. It was brutal -- really brutal and, actually, scary." Residents like Navarrete, who have lived on the beach for years, have dealt with severe flooding before, but nothing as severe as this week.
