GILBERT, AZ — Flooding due to heavy rain caused lane restrictions on US 60 near Val Vista Drive Sunday night.

Both east and westbound traffic was restricted to the leftmost lanes.

Traffic was temporarily restricted to only the HOV lanes.

Arizona Department of Transportation camera footage appeared to show a vehicle stuck in the water.

The freeway was blocked by flooding just days before in the same area.

The town of Gilbert received 0.43" of rain Sunday night, according to the Maricopa County Flood Control District. Just west of the area, more than an inch of rain had fallen.

When driving in wet monsoon conditions, remember to "turn around, don't drown."
