Flooding on E. 32nd Street in Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- A flooded park is the reason Scott Young isn't taking any chances hanging around his neighborhood.

The heavy rains soak the area forcing road crews to block off several streets near E. 32nd and Clio Road.

Scott said he'll take his chances with water, elsewhere

"We are going to the Southern Belle to get on the boat. They say they do it rain or shine."

The area around Clifton Hills Elementary was submerged in nearly a foot of water and several homes were dealing similar problems.

As the streets continued to be blocked off, rains pound the pavement and daring drivers rushed through the area as police monitored the nearby roads.

Young said, "I just saw people driving through the water over there. It is just crazy."
