This past Monday, the Metro Detroit area I live in got slammed with torrential rainfall. 3"-5"+ in about 8 hours.

Some video showing the flooding: Hayes Road Flooded Aerial Drone Video[^]

The drone starts the video by looking and flying southbound on Hayes Road. The area you can see in the camera footage has been known to flood in the past, but never like this in the last 50 years. Hayes Road has had water over it before, but only a couple of inches deep. The cars you see in the water are in the middle of Hayes Road at a high spot and were still completely submerged at one point during the storm. At the time this video was taken, the water had receded about 18".

I used to live not far from that area 25 years ago. Here's a map[^] of what it looks like dry.
