Heavy Rain & Storms Leave Behind Damage

CHARLOTTE, NC – Heavy rain and storms caused traffic trouble especially throughout South Charlotte Saturday afternoon.

Cars navigated traffic lights out at several intersections in Ballantyne, including Johnston Road near the Ballantyne Village Shopping Center.

A few miles away in South Charlotte, McKee Road flooded near Providence Road.

Some cars drove through the water, some crossed the yellow line to avoid it.

We saw Duke Energy crews on scene near Mint Hill.

A tree fell completely blocking Cabarrus Road and taking down power lines.

We’re told power was out for at least a mile.

And in Uptown.. Police were on scene of a small sinkhole near the Midnight Diner.
