NORFOLK - As the rain falls for a second day, some roads are flooded.  

Particularly in the overnight hours, drivers who can't see the standing water get into an area and then stall.

13News saw one car that the owner had abandoned on Princess Anne Road.

City spokeswoman Lori Crouch told WVEC.com there likely will be more street closures at peak tide time around 10:30 a.m.

She also said 60 people and five cats are using the shelters that opened over the weekend.

 

Flooding forced Hampton Roads Transit to temporarily suspend light rail service downtown starting at the Norfolk State University Station.

High water caused HRT to suspend ferry service across the Elizabeth River. Officials say the North Landing dock in Portsmouth is flooded, preventing passengers from accessing the ferry.

While buses are operating, they're having to detour around some streets because of high water. Bus passengers can call HRT customer service at 222-6100 to find out about service on their routes.
