Here are a couple scenes from last night's flooding. How many inches of rain did Raleigh-- now named the best city in America, which means this must be the best Raleigh fire blog in America-- get anyway? Top shot shows Rescue 1 personnel returning from checking stranded vehicles on Wake Forest Road between Atlantic Avenue and Millbrook Road. Bottom photo is Blue Ridge Road, north of Western Boulevard. Engine 8 had helped there for a while. Photographer conveniently arrived moments after the engine cleared. See more photos.
