Heavy rain left standing water on some area streets Tuesday evening. Newschannel 15 Chief Meteorologist Nicholas Ferreri said two inches of rain fell Tuesday and that set a record for the most rain that has ever fallen on June 19th.

All that rain left the intersection of New Haven Avenue at East Wayne Trace flooded. Fort Wayne Police blocked off the area until the water receded.

A viewer also sent NewsChannel 15 a picture of a flooded street in Decatur. Brad Engle submitted a photo that shows a car going through high water on Cherry Lane.

If you come across flooded areas police advise you to turn around and find an alternate route.
