Heavy rains this afternoon caused street flooding in several areas of Ann Arbor. On East Summit Street near Wheeler Park, some residents decided to treat the flood as an opportunity for recreation.
Some waded in the knee-high water, while others floated on rafts and tubes.
University of Michigan meteorologist Dennis Kahlbaum said southeast Ann Arbor received 1.5 inches of water between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. "Most of it probably fell in an hour's time," he said.
The area of South Fifth Avenue near East Madison Avenue in Ann Arbor also flooded after the rains, with water standing several inches deep in the street.
