Rains leave Detroit underwater

(WDIV)  Some highways and streets were still impassable Tuesday after a storm dumped more than six inches of rain on southeastern Michigan, stranding motorists and prompting state police divers to search flooded freeways.

The state continues to warn commuters against driving in affected areas.

“The freeway system is not safe right now. A lot of the areas may be electrified,” said Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw. He added that MSP would be towing cars that had to be abandoned on freeways and primary roads. Drivers should call MSP to find out where they can pick up their car.
