Water Rescues, Road Closures, and a Whole Lotta Rain all at Once!

Rain started coming down in Greensboro Wednesday night, and it just didn't stop.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Rain came down in Greensboro Wednesday night, and it just didn't stop. 

A flash flood warning went into effect for Guilford County around 8 p.m. and ended around 10 p.m. 

Within that short time, Greensboro Police say "numerous" water rescues happened around the city. 

In a tweet, the city said they had 42 combined rescues and emergency evacuations during the storm.

WFMY News 2 crews out in the field saw several cars halfway submerged in floodwaters, drivers abandoning their vehicles, and some drivers taking the risk of driving through the mess. 

Heavy rain also brought power outages. Around 3,000 Greensboro customers are without power at this time, according to the Duke Energy outage map. 

Over at Revolution Mill, the parking lot looked more like a lake, with several cars submerged in the water. The nearby Buffalo Creek rose to levels higher than when Hurricane Florence brought torrential rain to the Triad. 

The storm caused flooding at LeBauer Park, forcing the park to close its interactive fountain.
