CLEVELAND (AP) — Drivers in northeast Ohio were dealing with flooding and road closures during the morning commute thanks to heavy overnight thunderstorms.
Storms that swept across Lake Erie flooded major highways near Cleveland Tuesday morning. On the west side of the city, flooding conditions caused Interstate 90 near Rocky River to close, and lanes along the West Shoreway to partially close. Standing water on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive on the east side of downtown also slowed morning motorists.
About 12,000 were without power early Tuesday morning in northeast Ohio.
Steady rain continued early Tuesday, but was expected to clear out by midday.
