Heavy rain early Saturday morning caused flash flooding in parts of Massachusetts, leaving drivers stuck in flood waters.
"A heavy and slow-moving thunderstorm brought 3 to 4 inches of rain to some of suburbs of Boston in a very short time this morning," AccuWeather Meteorologist Jordan Root said.
Water falling in such a short time caused storm drains to become overwhelmed, causing streets and parking lots to turn into lakes and rivers.
Several roads were flooded in Winthrop, Chelsea and Lynn, Massachusetts. Major streets in Lynn were closed, including the Lynnway, Western Ave., Boston Street, Commercial Street and Broadway.
