Flooding from Isaias impacts areas across the Delaware Valley

Emergency crews across the area responded to calls for water rescues and closed roads as rain from Isaias prompted flash flooding on Tuesday.

FOX 29 cameras were there as crews worked to rescue motorists from vehicles near Route 202 in King of Prussia early Tuesday morning.

Flooding prompted the closures of I-76 in both directions between Route 202 and Valley Forge.

Cars were seen partially submerged in Upper Darby near 69th and Marshall Street. FOX 29 crews on the scene reported that no one was in the submerged vehicles.
