VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. —

Some of central Florida's coastal areas have gotten at least five inches of rain since midnight and it's still coming down.

In Volusia County, many areas have flooded as a result of the heavy rains, sending crews racing to prevent more damage.

"We went down to Walmart earlier and got flooded out down there," said resident Bill Shore. "Seemed like Walmart was going to wash away."

In Daytona Beach, streets flooded and storm drains were overwhelmed in several areas.

"It's crazy. It's just miserable," said resident Hollie Owen. "I mean, you really don't want to do nothing. You just want to sleep most of the day."

In Ormond Beach near the scenic loop, an entire road near one viewer's home flooded.

In Daytona, workers continue to struggle with trying to find a way to pull out an expensive piece of equipment submerged in a canal off of Nova Road.

City workers ran pumps to control most of the flooding and cleared debris from drains, but the water still made its way to roads throughout the area.
