Raleigh flooding (Raleigh Police)

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The Raleigh Police Department issued a significant flood warning Saturday morning, where they say roads are undrivable and vehicles are getting stuck under water.

At the intersection of West Gate and Fast Park Dr. police showed two cars in flood waters, as well as a downed tree across an entire road.

At least one ambulance was called to the scene, scene in the picture from Raleigh police, but it is unclear the extent of needed assistance at this time.

Finally, officers reported 1806 Wake Forest Road, just south of East Whitaker Mill Road, is closed in both north and southbound due to down power lines. Police expect it to be closed for multiple hours, a tweet from the department said.

CBS 17 will update this article as more information becomes available.
