8141063078?profile=RESIZE_710xA man removes pylons from the flooded roadway along North Atlantic Drive in the Hypoluxo Island portion of Lantana on Nov. 9. Heavy rains flooded the road and yards. While the road was passable, the water was at least 8 inches deep in places. Lantana Mayor Dave Stewart, who lives in the neighborhood, says this is nothing new. “When you have the king tides, there’s always flooding in certain areas of Hypoluxo Island,” he says. “It’s been that way since I moved here in 1977. You can’t control Mother Nature.” Jerry Lower/The Coastal Star
