Water has begun to make its way across the roadways in Intracoastal City.

Water levels are rising with the help of the surge as Hurricane Laura moves closer.

Residents in the area say that the sight of water rising rapidly means it is time to leave.

Reporter Matthew Torres was in the area at 5:00 pm with a look at what might come in the next hours as Laura moves closer to the coast making landfall overnight.
