ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Flash flooding is causing some vehicles to get stuck in some low lying streets and highways. A rainstorm is pushing through the area and is dumping several inches of rain.
First responders are working to help the vehicles stuck at the intersection of Delmar and Vandeventer.
Lanes of westbound I-64 near the St. Louis Science Center were also covered in rainwater. First responders were able to reroute traffic around the water. The water has since receded and the lanes are moving now.
A flash flood warning has been issued for most of the area. 1-2 inches of rain has fallen between I-70 and I-64 and at least some street flooding is likely.
Flash flooding has developed in East St. Louis, Granite City, St. Louis, and parts of St. Louis County.
