CLEVELAND, Ohio — A portion of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive is closed due to high water.

The road is closed between East 88th Street and East Boulevard. Traffic is backing onto Interstate 90 in both directions.

Fox 8 cameras showed vehicles driving through the water. Doing so can be extremely dangerous as a car can be carried away in just a few inches of water.

Heavy rains early Monday also caused high water on other roads in Northeast Ohio.

ODOT said the right lane of I-90 westbound at Prospect and I-77 was closed due to high water. Delays were expected throughout the morning rush hour.
