The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties until 9:30 p.m.

The NWS is reporting that as of 8 p.m. Friday, nearly two inches of rain has fallen on some areas. 

A flash flood warning is put into effect when there is the chance of rapid and potentially life-threatening flooding. In urban areas avoid flooded roads and obey road closures.

CBS 3 Springfield has been following reports of flooded roadways including the underpass at Sargeant Street in Holyoke, Prospect Street in Chicopee and areas of Northampton. 

Do not try and forge through the water, as several vehicles have already been stuck.
