Record Rainfall of over 7 inches fell over certain areas of Philadelphia. This is the second month of record breaking rain. Motorists on a major route (The Schuylkill Expressway) were trapped in a section of expressway where they were faced with up to 3 feet of water and nowhere else to go. Several drivers were not able to successfully cross the rising water and ended up stalled out.
The Philadelphia Airport had a major power outage do to flood waters causing major delays.
