(WPRI) — Showers and thunderstorms are moving through Southern New England, bringing torrential downpours, street flooding and dangerous lightning.

The National Weather Service has canceled Flash Flood Watches and Warnings that had been in effect for much of the day.

Flash flooding is still possible in flood-prone areas. We’re hearing reports of serious flooding in Fall River and in the area of Franklin Street in Warren, which according to Chief Meteorologist Tony Petrarca has received nearly 2 inches of rain in just 25 minutes.

The weather has also had an impact in the air, as some flights in and out of T.F. Green have been delayed.
