VIDEOS: Heavy rain brought flooding across Central Virginia, and resulted in over a dozen flooded vehicles.
As the storm started to pickup Richmond Fire Department warned citizens to be careful on the roads as they get multiple calls for vehicles stuck in high water.
The department reminded people not to drive in standing water.
Despite reminders, there were still 19 people who needed to be rescued from cars stranded in high water. Most of the calls came in between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. but two more people were helped from a flooded car just before 8 p.m.
Flooding impacted the Southside of the city especially hard. At Maury Street and Blake Street, there were two vehicles stranded with water almost up to the windows. Another car was flooded at 20th Street and Bainbridge Street.
