Wellington to residents: Clear lawns and drains before rain starts

Facing the dicey prospect of heavy rains from a tropical system in the Caribbean, Wellington is asking residents to remove debris from their lawns and make sure all the drains are cleared before the wet weather starts.

If drains get clogged during the storm, there could be some street flooding in the village. Wellington officials are expecting flooding in the low-lying areas, similar to the recent storms earlier this month.

Forecasters are predicting as much as eight inches of rain in parts of South Florida.
