How severe flooding is affecting one Cape Coral neighborhood

CAPE CORAL – People are kayaking in the street and fish are swimming in driveways.

Those are the conditions in one Cape Coral neighborhood on a daily basis, and we’re hearing from one man living there who wants the City to take action.

Almost every afternoon during the summer, people living on SE 9th Terr. are used to just watching as their neighborhood becomes a lake. That’s when people break out the kayaks, and watch their pools begin to overflow.

“This is a daily occurrence. My wife has to call me and see how the conditions are if she can come home or not," said Chris Doyon, who has been living on SE 9th Terr. for 21 years.

He took video with his cell phone Monday night as his neighborhood flooded again. He even caught a fish swimming in his driveway.
