May storms turned into floodwaters in some parts of the county. Especially hard hit were the County Pocket and Briny Breezes.

7960948056?profile=originalBy May 29, the waters on Winthrop had receded, but not disappeared as state Rep. Mike Caruso and County Commissioner Gregg Weiss toured the area and sought input from a dozen of the neighbors.

‘This is Palm Beach County and we should not have homes underwater,’ Caruso said.

On June 24, Caruso sent a letter to the Palm Beach County administrator requesting a meeting to clarify road ownership and discuss health and public safety in the County Pocket.
