valley overnight, rain is falling this morning, where you could see wet roads on your drive to work. rainfall all over the valley, writing up on the radar, complete team coverage straightahead. some like butter on toast others like it on the starship enterprise. the out of this world display at the iowa state fair you have to see. anything but toxic, britney spears says yes, when you can see her do carpel karaoke with late late show host james corden on. >> good morning to you. i matt mauro along with tram mai jimmy q. and krystle henderson. >> let's take you outside, a live look from sky 12 as it
look at this flooding right here. this again in the mesa area, we are awaiting word on what intersection this is, but you can see the mess. as this car is going through this intersection very very bad idea. it does not take much for the car to be swept away or get stalled, again a couple of cars here we don't advise drivers to obviously very dangerous, you don't know how deep the water is. but we are keeping our eyes on the roads from the ground and in the air and obviously people are just not taking heed to the warnings. about these flooding intersections, but again, jimmy one of the hardest hit areas in the valley, east valley.>> getting big-time in the mesa area. right now more water in the
your car getting water in the engine on top of that then you could need a water rescue. the storms are continuing to develop this morning, starting overnight 2:00 in the morning. more rainfall just feeding up. we have been waiting for this all day yesterday, mother nature finally sorry to answer the call to the south we have can develop into bigger amounts of rainfall near gilbert up toward the 202. a lot of it moving away from the downtown area, scottsdale a few showers. right along the 202. we will see more widespread flooding as this continues to develop throughout the morning. more rainfall and more storms, the ground is completely saturated, it cannot hold any more water looking at 87 look at the rainfall. these storms will continue we will have more on this along with rainfall totals for this
coverage for monsoon 2016. we go to mesa right now. >> reporter: we are in the scottsdale area for a while as you saw earlier we had the news camera set up we had that heavy downpour, there were some sections of the 202 with no power. we came up to this, this is is blocking luckily the driver is okay. he was in the slow lane of the freeway headed eastbound. he hit some kind of a puddle and he said he is familiar driving in this weather but his car hydroplaned he lost control coming across this rock section swerving into the wall the on ramp. there is a unit blocking the
a tow truck pulled up to get the car out of the way as quickly as possible. this is in the opposite direction of rush hour. check out all the side airbags -- airbags deployed. this is the driver walking, he is okay, no scratches he is basically just counting his blessings. after this crash we saw another car lose control ahead. and there is another car up the freeway on its side. >> so incredibly dangerous when the rain is falling down, a lot of cars hydroplaned. we are giving you a live look again at an area in mesa where you can see so much flooding. obviously when you have got this much rain coming down so fast, the ground becomes saturated and it cannot handle it and it spills into the roadways. of course, it is hard not to
the other, but we obviously do not recommend it, obviously there have got to be alternate routes. if you look at that house that could possibly have a lot of flooding as well as the water has just spilled into the front yard. we just got word this is mesa drive, a very dangerous area. if you can id please do. again, possibly some houses even flooded in the area. the land nearby to the right of that street, it looks like a mini lake. flooding obviously really really bad in the area. krystle how can drivers get around this area? >> you can seek out mcdowell also brown, university. perhaps maybe you can use stately, if you are trying to
freeway or country club. so again, avoid the area, it seems like the northeast mesa section of the east valley was the bull's-eye of the strongest and heaviest of the rain. we have had a number of crashes on the 202. right now you're looking where nico was live moments ago they are pulling the car up to the tow truck. in the meantime, the on ramp heading eastbound it is blocked, you will need to use greenfield in that case. earlier we had a rollover. the trout -- tow trucks are ready doing their due diligence to get these crashes out of the way. this is down the field that greenfield, 202 westbound not blocking off to the side but certainly you will be seeing quite a few of these as you drive into the 60 and the 202 san tan.
we had a disabled vehicle and an earlier crash causing a ton of slowing on the 101 eastbound between the 17 and 51. also where you are seeing the blue is where we showed you sky 12, high water in some cases, very wet roads. back to you. we are following breaking news as arizona has issued an amber alert authorities trying to find this woman. ledwina yazzie last seen in pine springs northwest of holbrook. 5'2" 145 pounds was last seen wearing a tan shirt and dark brown pants. she has a tattoo of a cross on her left arm. the navajo police department believe she has taken a four- year-old girl named liliea walker , the girl was last seen wearing a pink shirt with blue leggings, shoulderlength hair with bangs. reason to believe the two may be traveling into the city. if you see them call

may be over, the two met face- to-face hashed it out and all is well. the rock took to instagram saying all families have conflict and by working to resolve it, they are better for it. it is happening, britney spears going for the ride that fans have been waiting to see and hear is the proof. she posted this picture coming up on social media, she said she took a ride with james corden did a little carpal karaoke, watch the late late show on august 28. we will be covering the right here in your morning juice.
but i'm sure there was a lot of dancing. surveys show that many women have three things they would like to change about their significant other. we want to know what are those three things? in your opinion or maybe what you think the masses believe. the first two things can be changed but only when she is around to supervise. the third one often keeps a man from growing up. >> videogames? stop playing video games. >> maybe too much football. >> there is no such thing. my initial reaction was just three things on that list? keep your guess is coming in, we will have the answer in 25 minutes. in the meantime it is 6:18. team 12 is all over the latest monsoon. here we are scanning the

is a long stretch and it has been sluggish, traffic between the 17 and 51 average speeds in the 20s. that route is slower than usual, give yourself extra time, the weather is to blame for a rockfall near 24 mile southwest. close that milepost 314, use caution, just be watchful. okay, this traffic trivia question goes really well with the weather today. we will reveal the an question is with 5.8 million crashes each year in the country what percentage of those is weather-related? >> we have had a lot of crashes this morning probably weather- related. the rainfall down across the area, some big storms starting to pop, this line goes from phoenix down to tucson, it is the storms to the south with the watch now, a lot of the

coolidge along the 10 this will be pretty rocky out there. the big concern now will they make it to the south or will they pushoff to the north northeast? val vista expects from samaria and the san tan valley. scattered storms around today once the round is done it could go another couple of hours, the storms could regenerate with flash flood advisories across much of the area. localized flooding we have seen curb to curb flooding, they problems out there. today we do try out, to fix the leaky roof you'll have to wait until tuesday. another shower coming wednesday. coming up next, we are taking you live to rio de janeiro talking with silver medalist sam dorman who is from tempe. and his parents who are there right now.
