Albany Area "Rained Out"

Flooding took over Albany Tuesday evening.
Zach Malloy

 It was water everywhere Tuesday evening in the Albany area.  Fast moving waters across roadways caused numerous accidents and stranded vehicles as powerful thunderstorms passed over the Capital Region around 6 p.m.  Many highways and downtown streets were under water.  Several roadways closed as rescuers came to aid stranded motorists.  The rain overpowered sewer systems.  In Albany, water was seen gushing up from sewer grates along Hackett Blvd. Latham also was hit by severe flooding.  Meteorologists were warning more rain could fall later in the evening.
