Rain storms cause major flooding in Roanoke as streets are turned into rivers throughout the area.

Emergency crews rescued 28 people after Peter's Creek swelled over its banks.

Flash flooding stranded 19 children and two adults at a daycare center before they were all taken to safety.

There are no reports of any injuries, but a local daycare did need to be evacuated.
