VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - The rain finally began to slow down in Volusia County on Saturday, after several days of severe weather left roads flooded and made traffic a mess for drivers.

On Friday, cars could be seen stopped on roads in Ormond Beach, where drivers did not want to plow through the deep water.

Volusia County resident Donnie Steedley pulled right around the cars. He said he wasn't worried.

"I'm in a truck," Steedley said.

Throughout the day, crews responded to standing water on several streets in Daytona Beach as steady rain overwhelmed drains.

Meteorologists said the daily rainfall record was broken in Daytona Beach on Friday. The city received a total of 2.26 inches of rain.

Crashes on I-95 caused by the wet conditions created a traffic mess for drivers Friday evening.

"Got a delivery in Miami," said trucker Angelo Franklin. "Of course that's not going to happen because of the weather."

As of noon Saturday, conditions had improved in Volusia County and there wasn't much rain. There were no major traffic incidents reported Saturday morning.
