that record rain and flash flooding in the east coast this morning as much as, oh, ginger just told us 10 inches falling in parts of New York this morning. I need to see this picture here on Long Island. All those cars underwater. Oh, my goodness. ABC's gio Benitez right there in Long Island right now and in Lyndon Hurst with the latest. Good morning, gio. Reporter: Robin, good morning to you. This is what we're seeing all across the northeast right now. Car after car just stuck in this flooding. It is a mess all across the country. Oh, no. Reporter: This morning -- Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Reporter: 6 to 9 inches of rain reported in New Jersey. Highways in Long Island flooded. The avenue completely under water. Reporter: Inundating east and west. In Phoenix, Arizona, one man seeking refuge from the rushing floodwaters often top of his car. The fire truck driving into the water to try to save him. Oh, no. Reporter: But when the car starts to move underneath him, he takes a leech of faith. Near Baltimore, Maryland, a woman and her car overcome by water. It was up to the bottom of the door. Reporter: This rescue just one of more than two dozen in the area according to officials there. Soaked in 6 to 10 inches of rain Tuesday. I'm shocked. I'm surprised. I've never seen it this way before. Reporter: In parts of Michigan highways submerged. You don't want to be on the lodge going toward Davison right now. Unless you got a boat. Reporter: An estimated 100 cars abandoned. Drenched in nearly half a foot of rain. Now recovering from the flooding with two reported deaths Tuesday. In Raleigh, North Carolina, we're up to 3 inches of rain fell. 40 people evacuated from nearby inns to shelters. When the water starting coming in and flooding my bed and everything else. I knew we were in trouble. Reporter: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the danger wasn't floods but this sinkhole swallowing this car whole. Started to back up and I felt a thunk and I was sticking up in the air. Reporter: Back out here in Long Island where we're seeing this flooding. When you hear that term flash flood, remember, it's just that. It's going to go down at some point so don't rush out the door and get stuck like hundreds from Detroit to Maryland. Robin. All right, gio, thank you very much. Of course, ginger has been track all this, as well. Wanted to show you how much has already fallen first. You can see that bull's-eye just south of Baltimore then the latest, 6 to 8 inches. As we mentioned earlier more than 10 inches reported in Islip, Long Island. The radar showing it training over central and eastern long Island. It's going to be coastal throughout the day and this is how it's going to time out. Places like Boston will get it late morning early afternoon. Then by tonight much of Maine soaked so that's a look at the forecast part of this but I wanted to show you new video coming in overnight. Check this out. A security camera seeing in western Nebraska that flash flooding rushing through a medical center. The Numbers out there were 4 to 6 inches but a sewer backed up and as that's the thing, when you have an urban area, it can't handle it. Looking toward the future this is what we'll deal with in pars of the northeast and new England yet to come today. Thank you.
