VIDEOS: Storms hammer Allentown area, major flooding

Lehigh County

Monday, another day of relentless rain closed major roads and stranded many motorist as creeks flooded.  The video below shot by Mike Nester from Lower Macungie Township’s Spring Creek Rd and Shasta Lane for a vehicle in high rushing water with two occupants inside. Crew worked to secure the vehicle and removed the two occupants via the passenger window of the vehicle.  No one was injured in this or any of the other reported vehicles in water calls.

In the video below, you’ll see numerous area roadways under water from Whitehall and North Whitehall Township’s.

This is the second major storm system to hit the Allentown Metro area this month.  This round of storms dropping 4 to 5 inches of rain.  Please, if you see water on the roadway, DO NOT attempt to drive through it.  You put yourself and all the rescue workers at risk.
