CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – Canal Drive in Carolina Beach closed again Saturday evening due to street flooding from Hurricane Sandy.

As you can see from the pictures, the street flooded to the point where authorities blocked off most of the cross streets between Canal and Carolina Beach Avenue North.

At times, as much as a foot of water on the road in many places. Carolina Beach Ave. North appeared to have some standing water, but nothing that was impassable.

The rain continued throughout Saturday, forcing the closure again around 6 p.m.

Drivers are reminded to avoid flooded areas as it's difficult to determine the depth. "Turn around, don't drown."
