Fast moving storm pounds valley with rain

PHOENIX -

Across the valley, people were waking up to the sound of rain Thursday morning, and this time, the storms didn't skip over central Phoenix.

A lot of times, we'll see rain around the valley. But not at Sky Harbor, where the official Phoenix rain gauge is.

Sky Harbor and Phoenix got a direct hit.

The rain really started to fall around 5 a.m. before the sun came up. There was a good downpour downtown near 7th Street and Van Buren.

This is how that rain storm looked from our tower cam on South Mountain, facing north toward the city. We've sped up the video for you.

A half hour later, another storm was caught by our tower cam. Watch how big the rain storm gets as it moves across your screen.

"These storms weren't severe, but there was enough rain falling to produce a flood."

"I walk early in the morning and I got sprinkled on, it was really nice this morning," says Steve Jennings.

"I'm used to a lot more rain than this but yeah it's nice, it's cooling everything off, it's great," says Pat Connelly.

"Wondering what our dog is doing, digging a hole in our couch. Thunder, lightning," says Barbie Connelly.

One of the hardest hit areas was the north part of Tempe, where over an inch of rain fell.

At Jaycee Park, near Hardy and University, there was a lot of standing water left over from this morning's rain storms.

Three-quarters of an inch of rain fell at Sky Harbor from the morning storms. That means in just the past week, the airport has gotten 40 percent of its total rainfall for this year so far.

That's after over 100 days without any rain there.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
