Tropical rainstorms in South Florida lead to flight delays and streets jammed with stalled cars

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A tropical disturbance that brought a rare flash flood emergency to much of southern Florida delayed flights at two of the state's largest airports and left vehicles waterlogged and stalled in some of the region's lowest-lying streets.

''Looked like the beginning of a zombie movie,'' said Ted Rico, a tow truck driver who spent much of Wednesday night and Thursday morning helping to clear the streets of stalled vehicles. ''There's cars littered everywhere, on top of sidewalks, in the median, in the middle of the street, no lights on. Just craziness, you know. Abandoned cars everywhere.''

Rico, of One Master Trucking Corp., was born and raised in Miami and said he was ready for the emergency.
