Video from Brooklyn just an hour or so ago just happening at this moment. Don't drive into water. Don't do what these folks are doing. It is dangerous anywhere from Colorado to Maine this morning.

Rain sweeping into Chicago almost two inches falling in just one hour. Trees peeling from the ground and in Chester, Pennsylvania, firefighters rescuing two people from their flooded car.
