CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) — The Clearwater Police Department is warning people to heed warning signs when it comes to parking on the beach.

The tides can change water levels quickly along the Courtney Campbell Causeway. “The sign and barriers are there for a reason.”

A series of pictures show how one beach visitor got a rude awakening when the high tide came back and flooded their car, which was park in a habitat restoration area.
