Heavy Rain Causes Flooding In Residential Neighborhoods

BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WJZ) -- The rain has caused quite a mess in some Baltimore County neighborhoods.

Monique Griego reports the water has washed out many roads.

Heavy rain swelled a stream off Buckingham Road, covering streets with several feet of water.

Larry McKelvin couldn't believe a rapid river was running right through his neighborhood.

"It's just amazing to look at the power this water has.  I'm in the fire department, so just to see this power and the damage it can do, just in awe," he said.

Flooded streets forced many driver to re-route their morning commute.

Many homeowners say they haven't seen floodwaters like this since Hurricane Agnes.

Some are also worried about how this water is saturating the ground and impacting their trees.

Until the water recedes, roads will remain closed.
