Heavy rain strands drivers on Glenwood Road

An intense evening thunderstorm Monday left tree branches on the ground and streets flooded in Brooklyn.



On Glenwood Road in East Flatbush, the downpour left a number of cars stranded between Schenectady Avenue and East 46th Street.



One driver told News 12 that people were helping one another push their cars clear.

The flooding caused traffic in both directions.
