Created: 07/28/2014 7:33 AM WHEC.com

A portion of 490 west under the Goodman Street overpass is back open after it was closed for less than an hour due to the weather. We're told a state trooper was able to remove debris from a storm drain, allowing the standing water to leave the roadway.

Early Monday morning, an emergency weather alert from the National Weather Service was sent to smart phones in the area alerting of the possibility for flash flooding.

The heavy overnight rain caused flooding on the roadways and the standing water caught many motorists by surprise and caused several accidents.
