Heavy rain in record amounts across southeastern Michigan on Monday night left many roads impassable.   Fox 2 viewers sent in hundreds of photos and several videos to demonstrate with full clarity just how crazy was out there.

Portions of Interstates 75, 94, 696 and the Lodge and Southfield freeways were closed Tuesday morning. Other roadways remained under water, while mud, debris and vehicles blocked traffic elsewhere. Motorists were stranded on flooded roads in the Flint area.
 
Warren Mayor James Fouts said roughly 1,000 vehicles had been abandoned in floodwaters in the suburb where many roads were closed after 5.2 inches of rain fell Monday. He said he was seeking state help for residents dealing with the "overwhelming" and "catastrophic" flooding.

The Fox 2 Weather Authority says a record amount of rainfall fell in around metro Detroit with some areas seeing as much 6.25 inches of rain.  4.57 inches fell at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Romulus, breaking the previous record for Aug. 11 at the airport of 2.06 inches in 1964
