The heavy rainstorms that hit the Buffalo area caused big problems on several underpasses where deep water stranded some drivers.

Buffalo Fire crews helped a number of drivers, but in two cases, the water was so deep that members of the Swift Water Rescue Team had to suit up to get people out of cars that were in 4 to 5 feet of rain water.
