Nope, Rochester.

'Day's worth' of rain in 2 hours today floods cars, fills basements

Nope, I was at work and we had lunch brought in, so I wasn't out on the roads until everything was dry. The great thing about being above sea level is that it will drain on its own, eventually. :)

It was mostly confined to underpasses and streets with only engineered drainage that just couldn't handle the volume. The only residences that were affected were some basement-level apartments in a complex in Irondequoit where 3-4 feet of water rushed in and moved furniture around and destroyed everything for about 25 people.

At home, our back yard flooded, but nothing worse than we've seen before such as after a big snow melt.
