Another torrential rainstorm has led to widespread flooding across the Springfield area.
Several cars were stranded up to their windows in standing water on South Sixth Street, just south of the Hoogland Center for the Arts. Numerous other main roads and side streets were also left impassable from the floodwaters. Most viaducts were closed, and a flash flood warning was issued into early Friday morning.
Motorists are reminded to use extreme caution, especially in low-lying areas and near streams and ditches. Never drive into standing water, which can be deceptively deep.
