Tampa, Florida -- The flood waters in the South Tampa area are beginning to recede this morning, but several cars flooded out by the deep waters remain stalled in some of the hardest hit areas like Manhattan Avenue.
Tampa Police say they are getting reports of flooding this morning in the usual areas where we see flood waters build during major rain events like South Dale Mabry, Bayshore Boulevard, Manhattan, Swann Avenue, and Westshore Boulevard.\
Bayshore Boulevard is closed due to the incliment weather.Avoid the area if you can.
Drivers are advised to turn around if they encounter flood waters on the road.
10 News spotted at least five cars that flooded out in the area of Manhattan and El Prado this morning.
The flood watershave significantly dropped since 5 a.m..
Tow truck drivers say it's been a busy night and they're expecting even more calls as the rush hour begins.
In some cases, tow truck drivers can't get to you, so take that as a warning to avoid driving through the water.
Tampa Police say unless there is an emergency, your only solution is to call a tow truck company to get you out.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is also reporting flooding in the areas of Winterwind Drive and Autumnwind Court, Hillsborough Avenue W and Sawyer Road, Hanely Road and Hillsborough Avenue, Powhatan Avenue W and Halifax, Powhatan Avenue W and Town and CountryBoulevard, Winter Oaks Lane and Carrollwood Village Drive.
