Greensboro, NC -- Strong storms rolled into the Triad Monday evening and brought along with them an assortment of wind, lightning, hail and heavy rain.

Torrential downpours produced an estimated 1"-2" of rain in less than an hour from southern Guilford County to central Alamance County. The heavy rain caused many small creeks and streams to quickly rise producing minor flooding in some locations.

Roadways were also flooded south of downtown Greensboro producing hazardous travel conditions for many during the evening commute.

Landmark Blvd off Wendover was completely under water in some spots. Police closed off the area and said they had to help drivers get to safety.

The FAA confirmed to WFMY News 2 that multiple flights were diverted from PTIA because of the storm.

In addition to the gusty winds and heavy rain, the storm also brought penny size hail to parts of the Alamance, Davidson, Guilford and Randolph Counties.
