The rain began falling early Friday evening and kept falling for several hours.  3-5 inches fell across Omaha and more than 5 was reported in La Vista.  The heavy downpours caused streets to flood and stranded many drivers. 

One of the area impacted was 96th Street between L and Q where several cars got caught in the high water.

The storm forced the Virgina-Ole Miss College World Series game to be suspended.  It will resume at 2:00 Saturday afternoon followed by the Texas-Vanderbilt elimination game at 7:00

OPPD officials say during last night's storm that packed 60-70 miles per hour winds, around 16,000 customers were left without power.

As of 7:00 Saturday morning the number had been cut to about 98-hundred.  OPPD officials say crews are working to restore power as quickly as safely possible.
