Strong thunderstorms swept through the Boston area early Wednesday evening, dropping buckets of rain, prompting the National Weather Service to issue flash flood warnings.
Heavy downpours dumped nearly 4 inches of water on some Boston neighborhoods, according to the National Weather Service.
According to meteorologists, 3.46 inches of rain fell in Dorchester, flooding major roadways. Jamaica Plain also saw 2.74 inches.
Elsewhere, Maynard had 3.37 inches and Walpole had 2.72 inches, according to the weather service.
In East Boston, winds blew up to 52 miles per hour, Vallier-Talbot said.
Just before 9 p.m., National Weather Service meteorologist Eleanor Vallier-Talbot said the worst of the storm had ended.
Earlier in the day, heavy rains, thunder and lightning wreaked havoc on some areas.
One vehicle was stuck on the arrivals level of Terminal A at Logan International Airport due to the flooding Wednesday afternoon, although it was pushed out without incident, said State Police Lieutenant Kieth DeAmbrose.
The Chelsea Fire Department responded to two reports of wires down between 2 and 3 p.m. as a result of the storm, said Deputy Fire Chief John Quatieri.
More rain could be on tap for Thursday.
There is a 35 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. The day will also be humid, partly sunny, with temperatures in the 80s, forecasters said.
