No huge dust this time around as the Valley experienced another round of monsoon storms on Wednesday.

The rain was initially spotty in mostly the east and northeast Valley but then a big rainstorm popped up over Glendale, knocking out power to hundreds of people.

The area around Mesa Drive and U.S. 60 in Mesa saw good soaking around 4 p.m.

The northeast part of Scottsdale and Paradise Valley were also hit with brief showers. Video from our news chopper showed flooded streets near the border of Paradise Valley and Scottsdale.

Then around 5:30 p.m., a rainstorm made its way through Glendale, with the force of Mother Nature knocking out power to more than 700 SRP customers. The impacted area was from 39th Avenue to the Interstate 17 and from Peoria Avenue to Northern Avenue.

The Phoenix metro area is under a flash flood watch until 2 a.m. Forecasters are concerned the storms could bring a lot of rain in a short amount of time.

However, much of the rest of the Valley hasn't gotten any rain. 

There was some haziness over downtown Phoenix around 4:25 but it wasn't anything major.

But there is still a chance to see more storms later on Wednesday night.

Farther east in Globe, there was a flash flood where the area is still recovering from last year's fire outside the city.
