Inoperable traffic signals should be treated as a four way stop and drivers should not travel on flooded roadways, authorities said.

Flooding was reported throughout Tampa, including on South Dale Mabry Highway, North Tampa Street, North Rome Avenue and Henderson Boulevard, authorities said.

Pinellas County was under a flood warning until 8 p.m.
