'Sewers can't take it': Local roads flood as rain pours down

MILWAUKEE -- Several local roadways temporarily flooded over Monday as heavy rain moved through southeast Wisconsin.

Port Washington Rd. in Glendale became impassible around 3:30 p.m. after a brief downpour. People in the area tell TODAY'S TMJ4 water was up to car doors.

Capitol Dr. in Wauwatosa was also briefly impossible as floodwaters accumulated.

Flash flooding changed this stairway in Waukesha into a waterfall. Viewer Jenny Rendall shared video with TODAY'S TMJ4:

The Milwaukee Public Library announced both its Capitol branch at N. 74th St.  and its Washington Park branch would be closed for the remainder of Monday's hours due to flooding in and around the building. The Milwaukee County Transit System said bus service may be running behind as well.
