Heavy rains pounded the Lehigh Valley on Monday.
In some areas, that led to rapid flooding.
Many roads throughout the region were covered with water soon after the rain came to a halt.
A pool of water was responsible for the partial closure of Lehigh Street near the South Mall in Allentown.
Police bordered the high water and instructed drivers to turn around to avoid the standing water.
In Upper Milford Township, a bridge near Indian Creek Road and Cedar Crest Boulevard was impassable.
Over in Whitehall, police officers direct traffic around a large pool of water near the Cedar Crest Boulevard and Hamilton Street intersection.
Cedar Creek overflowed into Cedar Beach Park in Allentown, allowing deep water to overtake the parking lot.
Residents of the 500 block of Mohawk Street in Allentown rushed to move their cars to higher ground.
The roadway was completely covered with water for almost 45 minutes after the rain ended.
"It was probably about two feet deep, came right below my knees, from the edge of our sidewalk all the way to our neighbor's porch," said Jamie Ritter, a resident.
Some described their street as a temporary river.
"There was a big flood that started at the end of the street and came down our street. When the rain came down it turned into a thing that looked like a river," said Kendal Herczeg, a resident.
