Heavy Rain Causes Street Flooding Early Wednesday Morning

Posted: Updated:
Crews had to shut down multiple sections of River Drive in Davenport early Wednesday morning as heavy rain caused some flooding. 

It was hard to tell how much standing water was collecting on some areas of the road. The water caused at least two cars to get stuck. 

At Federal Street and River Drive, police and the fire department responded to help with a driver in a car stuck in the flood waters at about 2:30 a.m. The driver made it out of the car safely and crews were able to reopen the road within about an hour or so. 

A similar situation happened at Marquette Street and River Drive overnight. Around 3 a.m. a driver and his passenger drove out of Centennial Park without realizing how deep the water collecting in the intersection was. They waited in the stalled car until a stranger came along and helped them move it off the road. 
Flood waters there had receded by about 4 a.m. the road reopened a short while later. 

Later Wednesday morning, all that was left of the flooding was some debris scattered on the roads.
