Across the region, flooding has been reported along roadways.
The Broad St/PA 611 southbound ramp to I-95 South was closed around 6 p.m. due to flooding, causing headaches for fans traveling to tonight’s Phillies game.
The ramp reopened around 7:15 p.m.
This was the scene in Bensalem, Bucks County as the rain there came down hard.
Roads were also underwater for the second day in a row. Eyewitness News was in South Philadelphia where rising water came right onto the underpass.
