MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - City streets are saturated this afternoon as remnants of Tropical Depression Fay push through Alabama.

Many people woke up Monday morning to soaking rain and severe weather sirens. Cars were bumper to bumper on U.S. Highway 31 during the early morning hours.

The downfall quickly flooded roadways like the Bell Street entrance of Maxwell Air Force Base.

City crews were also busy on Norman Bridge Road unclogging drainage ditches to alleviate flooding and traffic congestion.

Folks in Pike County also dealing with a wet mess.

The Pike County EMA Office office tells WSFA 12 News numerous trees are down in rural areas of the county, and there are also several trees down and some storm damage in the Needmore area. Fortunately, there are no injuries there to report.

Folks in East Alabama are also dealing with the severe weather. Rain-swollen U.S Highway 280 in Russell County caused drivers to have a tough time navigating through the area earlier Monday morning.
