Torrential downpours from severe thunderstorms Thursday morning caused pockets of flooding on a Genesee County interstate. 

The National Weather Service in Detroit/Pontiac issued a Flash Flood Warning for Western Lapeer County in southeastern Michigan and Genesee County in southeastern Michigan. The warning has since been cancelled. 

Thunderstorms produced heavy rain across the area where 1 to 3 inches of rain had already fallen.

Flash flooding was reported along I-475, south of Saginaw Street in Mt. Morris Township. Southbound lanes of I-475 just north of the Davison/Hamilton exit were also reportedly flooded, according to dispatch. 

Both areas have since been cleared, according to MDOT. 

Mid-Michigan is still recovering from heavy flooding late last month, but now the potential for more storms has some locals on edge.
