CLAYTON – Record rainfall early Tuesday led to street flooding throughout the Miami Valley.

Locally the City of Clayton saw flooding on Janice Place and Westbrook Road. Water flooded back yards with creeks forming in side yards that flowed into the roadway on Janice Place. That water eventually flowed toward Westbrook Road causing Clayton Police to block the westbound lane.

Janice Place was completely underwater from Westbrook 300 feet north to the 6100 block.

Portions of Phillipsburg-Union Road, Putnam Road and Haber Road also experienced water flowing over the roadway.

More heavy rain is forecast to call as a new line of thunderstorms prepares to enter the area between 3:30 and 4 p.m. Tuesday.
