Some residents are opting to stay in shelters and the space shuttle remains in orbit but floodwaters are showing some signs of receding across northeast Florida.

Scattered showers lingered Saturday and the storm system once again kept space shuttle Atlantis from landing at its Florida base.

Floodwaters had been waist-deep in the worst-hit parts of Volusia County, which includes Daytona Beach. But despite overcast, drizzly skies Saturday, they appeared to be receding, though residents and officials remained cautious.

Saturday was the sixth straight day rains fell in the area, where Gov. Charlie Crist has declared a state of emergency for 11 counties.

The main beachfront stretch of Daytona Beach appeared mostly untouched by the flooding, but part of the Daytona Beach International Speedway had been under water.
