CHICAGO --  Heavy storms Monday night dumped two to five inches of rain on the area and we're expecting another round of storms later today.

High water blocked several viaducts, including the ramp to Lake Shore Drive at Michigan and Oak.

There was a lot of flooding along the inbound Eisenhower.

Two lanes were closed for about an hour.

One man we spoke with says he tried to warn people before driving on the ramps.

The flooding was so bad in certain areas some drivers had to push their cars out.
