Many roads around Fargo remain impassable this morning as commuters start waking up and heading for work. Valley News Live's Robert Hahn snapped a picture of the intersection at 32nd 32nd Ave S and 32nd St S. He reported that at least one stalled car was seen in the water as well. University drive at I-94 also remained blocked off by Fargo police due to high water.

Farther to the south in Wolverton, residents reported many homes had been flooded as well as a church.

Fargo drivers ran into some problems Tuesday night as severe storms blew through.

 Crews had to close down Interstate 94 just west of Casselton for water over the road, and within Fargo city limits, there is even more of a mess. Deep puddles cover many city roads, and some reports say 13th Avenue South is covered with water from 25th Street all the way past Interstate 29. One caller tells us the water was up to the bumper of her car near Target on 13th Ave. That was around 10 p.m. Other roads in Fargo have been temporarily blocked off until the water recedes.
