Storms cause flash flooding in Alabama

Strong thunderstorms caused downpours that resulted in flash flooding in parts of Alabama.      The weather service didn't report any severe weather associated with the storms on Tuesday, but the downpours created headaches for some.     

Streets flooded in parts of Jefferson County and Birmingham, causing traffic tie-ups.

The weather service said flash flooding was likely near Montgomery, with deluges of as much as 2 inches of rain possible in a short time.     

In northwest Alabama, workers had to use brooms to sweep water out of the First Baptist Church of Russellville.

People used social media to post photos of muddy water that inundated a subdivision in the town.     

The National Weather Service says more rain is possible through the rest of the week, although Thursday is supposed to be drier.

    We may have to wait a little longer for fall to arrive in Arizona, but when it does, it's AMAZING. And that includes the fall colors. Yes, even in Arizona we get those reds, golds and yellows. It just takes a little bit of a road trip from the Valley to find them.
