LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) -

Very heavy rain from a thunderstorm flooded streets in Lebanon and Dauphin counties during the evening commute Monday.

Photos from viewers showed that the Quittapahilla Creek had overflowed its bank and closed a section of 22nd Street in West Lebanon, and vehicles were making their way through high water in the 600 block of Cumberland Street.

At least two vehicles became stranded in the flood waters at the intersection of 7th and Willow streets.

Derry Township Police announced road closures in their area as well, including Northeast Drive between Hersheypark Drive and Park, Hockersville Road southbound at CVS Pharmacy, and Homestead Road between Granada and East Chocolate avenues.

The National Weather Service in State College issued a flash flood warning for southern Lebanon County until 8:30 p.m.
