Some locations that experienced flooding included Miamisburg, Miami Township, Washington Township and Wes Carrollton.

One area that did experience flooding is Miami Township around the area of the Dayton Mall where 1-2 inches of rain during the quick burst.

Sections of the mall’s parking lot flooded, leaving cars sitting in water up to the windows, some with people trapped inside.

The low lying stretch of State Route 725 where it runs underneath Interstate 75 also flooded. One motorist told 2 NEWS the flooding there was “almost the size of a small pond.”

Flooding was also reported on Delavan and Katy drives in Miami Township and in some neighborhoods in Miamisburg, Washington Township, and West Carrollton.

There is a chance for a few showers and storms to develop through 8 p.m.  Rain may be very heavy at times and may produce quick flash flooding if a thunderstorm develops over your area.

The rain chances will diminish quickly after 10 p.m.  It will still be humid for the overnight hours.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, muggy. Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Low 67

SATURDAY: Partly sunny and warm, a little less humid. A slight chance of a few showers or thunderstorms by the late evening. High 83

SUNDAY: Partly sunny and warm. Just a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm. High 84

Most of the weekend looks dry, but we do have just the slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm each day. The next good rain chance arrives Tuesday of next week.
