    Floating car in Phoenix


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter Anthony Restar shot these photos on Monday afternoon in Glendale, Arizona: 'I was returning to work from lunch when a wall of water rushed and literally pushed my car a few inches on the intersection of Greenway and 59th Avenue. The rain was torrential, sudden and unrelenting. Glendale, AZ, is never prepared for things like this especially given the fact that its street drainage system is antiquated. Within minutes, there were cars floating up and down the main road from my work. Manhole covers popped up and cars fell into the holes. '
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    The skies opened up today and the streets in Glendale, AZ could not handle the deluge. Several cars tried to drive through it, and at least one just floated away. this is not in the outskirts, this is right in the city. manholes were popping up and cars were falling in. It was just surreal.
