Coast-to-coast rainfall keeping emergency crews busy

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 13, 2014

Strong summer storms are causing dangerous flash floods across the country.

Millions of Americans are still in the bullseye, as stormy weather is moving up the East Coast.

Flash flooding kept emergency teams busy in Phoenix where a dramatic water rescue was caught on tape. 

The Baltimore Beltway was backed up for miles on Tuesday afternoon. Parking lots at the Baltimore airport are flooded out. Some simply had to abandon their cars. 

Wednesday's forecast up and down the East Coast calls for even more rain. Flash flood watches extend from the mid-Atlantic through Maine.

Some areas are expecting up to three more inches of rain.
