Heavy Rainfall Creates Problems

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Heavy rains over the past few days have made for a soggy holiday weekend.

On Pensacola Beach Saturday morning, the waves continued to churn. But, that didn't stop some people from trying to have a good time.

Dean Hazelwood was at the beach Saturday. He had planned this vacation 6 months ago, and said nothing was going to stop him from enjoying it.

The weather caused some good waves, but it also caused a lot of damage and hazardous conditions.

On Massachusetts Avenue in Pensacola, water was rushing over the roadways. Cars had to slow down as they drove through the deep puddles.

There was also damage at a midtown Mobile neighborhood. An oak tree, over 100 years old, crashed onto a mail carrier van. Thankfully, no one was inside the van at the time. Neighbors, though, say the oaks are a staple in their neighborhood, and hated to see this one in particular coming crashing down.
