The amount of rain that came down this morning was just incredible - and it caused a lot of problems for drivers.

 You can see behind me how the underpass here at Genesee and Wasmuth is flooded out.

 And there is car stuck in the water that at one point had water up to its window.

 About an hour ago, the rain was really pounding down - and buffalo fire crews were called to this area to push out a number of cars.

 One of the vehicles we are told had some disable occupants inside - but no one was hurt.

 But even as firemen pushed out cars - we saw other still trying to drive thru the high water.

 Experts recommend never trying to drive through a flooded road because it can be deceiving- and the water can be much deeper to the point it can stall and even sweep away you car….
