KENOSHA --  More than five inches of rain flooded several neighborhoods in Kenosha.
The fast, heavy rain caused the National Weather Service to issue flash flood warnings for the area through early Monday.
Some vehicles were stuck on flooded streets when drivers tried to get through the water.  
"It was flooded all the way up the sidewalks. There were cars everywhere with water up to the door, said Kim Kaminski. Her neighborhood was flooded. 
City crews spent Monday morning checking sewer grates but say too much water all at once caused the flash flooding.
"We've been out since early this am," said Jack Barber with the city's Department of Public Works.
 "There's more rain coming down than what this area could handle."
"There's just no place for it to go so it ends up in basements. We've had 4 1/2 inches of rain in 4 hours," Ed St. Peter with Kenosha Water Utility. 
Some neighbors on 83rd Street and 27th Avenue spent Monday morning pumping water out of their basements while the Pick n' Save on 75th Street brought in fans to dry out their floor.
