MAPLE HEIGHTS, Ohio — Heavy flooding shut down Warrensville Center Road to Rockside in Maple Heights for a time Sunday evening.

Photos sent to Fox 8 from viewers show the water so deep, it submerged cars.

The right two lanes of Interstate 480 East at Warrensville Center in Bedford Heights were also closed due to flooding, as was Northfield Road below I-480.

All roads were reopened later Sunday.

Heavy rains and storms moved through the area Sunday afternoon, and flash flood watches and warnings were in effect through the evening.
