WTXL -- From Florida to New York, heavy rains have drenched cities up and down the east coast. Storms have left behind swollen creeks, flooded roads, and even a sinkhole in Baltimore. Parts of the Pensacola area got 26”  of rain in 24 hours.

Crews are working around the clock in many of the Mid-Atlantic states, trying to free drivers who got stuck in the high waters.

The rain has stopped in much of the northeast, but many roads from D.C. to Philadelphia are still flooded. Some good news though, the worst of the storm system is now headed out to sea.
