Drivers are having a rough time getting around the Twin Cities. Much of the Twin Cities metro is under a Flash Flood Warning, and parts of the state have seen 1-2 inches of rain an hour. The most extreme rain has moved to the east of the Twin Cities metro, but drivers are still dealing with the aftermath.

Major flooding was seen near Mall of America on Thursday morning, with vehicles struggling to travel across Highway 77. There were reports of up to 2-3 feet of standing water in some areas, but it has since been cleared. KSTP's own crew had trouble getting through the flooding this morning. Numerous stalled vehicles were seen on the traffic cameras.
