A Lyn-Lake intersection was hit with flash flooding Saturday evening.

Neighbors who live near 32nd Street and Aldrich Avenue gave drivers a warning about driving through flooded intersection. Some parked cars were half-way under water.

The water rose to residents' knees. Some helped re-route traffic while others went through the high water in kayaks.

They said once the heavy rain began, the intersection flooded within 10 minutes.
