Photos: Harvey brings back memories of Tropical Storm Isaac flooding

Palm Beach County got a tiny taste of a tropical cyclone-driven deluge in August 2012 when Tropical Storm Isaac sputtered by with little wind damage, but dumped more than a foot of rain when a training band of moisture stalled over the county.

Some residents in western Palm Beach County were stranded for five days in flood waters that lapped at their front doors. Firefighters drove trucks through 4-feet of water to help get people to doctor’s appointments or to buy supplies. Some schools were closed for a week.

Check out The Palm Beach Post’s photo gallery of the record-breaking event.
