According to ABC 8, heavy rain and tennis ball sized hail hit the area on Thursday. The severe weather paired with construction caused the interstate to become “flooded and impassable.”

Drivers were stuck on the roadway for hours, and captured footage of the incident. 

The water was reportedly cleared by Friday morning.
