but it did not lower to the ground. we will keep you updated on that. as of right now, not seeing any spin for this activity harris -- here for us. if i can get this pulled up for you. showers and thunderstorms are ongoing with extremely heavy rain. the biggest problem from this activity. your greens and your reds is what we're looking at here. this is of the velocity. we're seeing if there are any greens are reds close to each other. the good part about this is we're seeing gray in between where the heaviest rain is. that is indicating that we should not see too many issues here. there is a little green and red there. you get 60 mile-per-hour winds. it will cause more than enough damage. because we have had rainsoaked roadways in the ground is now situated, that is how this trees get toppled over easily. your power lines come down
loosened up a little bit. we needed that rain so badly that they rainsoaked it up beautifully. hearing cuyahoga, that is the only severe thunderstorm warning. we have other showers and thunderstorms ongoing. including down south. i've been watching this cell close to worcester. it is now over smithville headed to the north and east. said jackson, you will see an increase in rainfall. worcester is moderate, but here is her heavy rain over smithville. want to show rates for you. it is to inches per hour that can quickly lead to flooding. those low, shallow roads in the country flow first because they do not have the ability to hold all of the water. i want you to keep that in mind as well. let's take a another radar tour a little farther out. we have any pictures that we have gotten in, guys, that we
those roads are looking like on 90, eastbound. parma is starting to dry out. with a severe thunderstorm warning in cuyahoga. that is what i think has been extended. let me get up there on the radar. i will see where we are when it comes to that. but roadways are certainly full of water. a lot of ponding in peddling as our stormtracker is nearing the city and is hoping to try and drive farther south and east. we are hoping to get find us on facebook and twitter and let us see what the skies are looking like. if you notice any clouds dropping a little bit or if you are seeing any strong went damage, if you are noticing trees it down, we were just getting reports that 48,000 people are without power. and also walking river. a lot of the outs -- a lot of the lights are out. your stoplights are now stop signs.
as your severe thunderstorm warning goes, the timing of that. heavy rainfall is still in place over cuyahoga. when driving, i want you to take it extra slow. we have a lot of rain in a short amount of time. we do expect that you are going to run into major, major slowdowns. call home. let them know that you will be home late. and that accidents could easily happen with this much rain on the road. it is hard it is getting close again with the radar. we can take a look back at the doppler network. ohio city, brooklyn, newburgh heights as well as parma. up next would be cleveland heights, shaker heights, warrensville heights, garfield heights, and bedford. remember to slow down in weather like this. guys? are you hearing anything about problems out there on the roads? i was just looking at liam to

lowering in the front a little bit. keep up those pictures from the inside of your house. we have a light of lightning -- we have a lot of lightning strikes. this does look like it is starting to spread out a little bit which will help we can the winds. we will keep you updated as far as the severe thunderstorm warnings are concerned. i am speaking to the producer. say it ai we're back to radar. can we go to break and i'm going to come back to you with your power five doppler network. we are going to timeout the storms and show you when you
