Orlando has seen its traffic conditions worsen as Hurricane Matthew made landfall this week.
Many motorists are having to wait in long lines at intersections, and even those waiting to cross the street are being blocked from getting through.
What’s more, traffic is getting even worse in some areas, and it’s starting to get too dangerous to drive through at all.
“It’s getting more congested and we’re just waiting for the rain to pass,” said local driver David DeBakey.
“And we’re not even sure when it will.”
Orlando’s weather service predicts the worst of the storm will hit the US on Saturday morning, but residents are being warned to keep their cars at home and avoid driving until they get a chance to see if the rains are coming.
As the storm approached on Sunday, the storm started to move east-southeast, and the storm is now heading directly towards Florida.
The storm is expected to dump at least 15 inches (40 centimeters) of rain on parts of the state on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
While the city was already bracing for the worst, the new storm is likely to be even more devastating than the ones in recent months.
“The worst-case scenario for Orlando is that it could see 10 inches of rain, with a storm surge of 10 feet,” said Mike Zullo, an Orlando-based meteorologist with the Weather Channel.
“Orlando could be a very dangerous area to drive into.”
The storm is forecast to make landfall on Monday in Orlando, Florida.
