Patricio Minondo, 11, and his sister Nunia Minondo, 9, try to outrun the big waves along Bonita Beach Monday morning. A strong storm front brought the rough to Bonita Beach and the rest of Southwest Florida while the East Coast is pounded by waves from Tropical Storm Bertha near Bermuda. Fort Myers set a daily record for rainfall Saturday, receiving three inches at Page Field, according to the National Weather Service. The previous record for rainfall on July 12 was 2.43 inches set in 1975.  The heavy rainfall continued through Sunday with the gage at Page Field recording more than two inches.
