this is the last puzzle piece to move through our area before we finally see an end. heavy rain falling over the last five hours in eastern parts of west virginia. eventually that will move through our area and could bring rain showers with it. i'm going to keep equal chances for rain showers today at least through noon. only a little important rain to add to the problems that we're already seeing out there. we're going to talk about those problems, talk about flash flood warnings and talk about sunshine all coming up in a few minutes. >> looking forward to the latter part. thanks, lauryn. if you're heading out of the house, hear it all the time. take it slow on the roads. a number of spots we're monitoring where flooding closed the streets. >> derrick ward seeing it all, live in montgomery county with a look at what it's like there. hey, derrick. >> we are here along peach drive off east-west hyper. technically it's closed and you can see why,bl

this is a delivery vehicle that didn't quite make it to its destination. see crime scene tape. that car is wet inside. that gives you a sense of how high the water is in the area and why it has been closed for some time. the water has quickly receded. as you take a look on the other side, you can see that's a soccer field over there. it's still a pretty good amount of water here. again, if we're expecting more showers later, i think we can expect to see this probably become a problem again. rock creek runs just beyond the tree line over there. so earlier today we were down farther along the creek and you could see where all this water was coming from. but again, picturesque but you obviously don't want to wade through that right now. if you see standing water you don't want to ride. one thing you want to do is whistle the aendy griffith them. shee what we've got. two skips off the rock. hopefully more rain and we may have more rock skipping going
