Commuters deal with flooding in Burlington County

- Four inches of rain fell in Burlington County in less than two hours. The fast moving storm caught many off guard, including dozens of commuters trying to make it home from work. 

"All of the sudden around 6 o'clock it started pouring," one person told FOX 29.

One woman's car fell victim to a flash flood when the lightning fast storm created traffic woes--stranding many drivers and closing roads all over Burlington Township.

By nightfall Route 130 was still flooded out.  Burlington County fire crews spend the night rescuing passengers from their cars.

And you didn't have to have a car to be inconvenienced. Yes, even those on the train ride home were literally stopped in their tracks.

The northbound lanes of Route 130 are still closed at this hour.
