PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - The week-long storm that's been slowly moving through Arizona ended with a bang on Friday.
Heavy rain and hail hit parts of the Phoenix-area, causing streets to flood. Crews were called out to 12th Street and Cave Creek Road because a driver got stuck in a flooded wash. That person was able to get out of their car and on dry land. Interstate 17 and the Greenway Road underpass area was also flooded. Three vehicles were stuck in 2 feet of water, according to Phoenix firefighters. Crews were able to safely walk those inside the cars to safety. No one was hurt.
A Flash Flood Warning was issued for areas that included Glendale and Tolleson. It expires at 6:30 p.m. Drivers in the early part of the afternoon commute experienced gusty winds, thunder and lightning. Pea-size hail was reported in central Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria, Surprise and Wickenburg.
