On Wednesday, roads were chewed up into pieces or wiped out entirely and neighborhoods were inundated, making rescues difficult for hundreds of people who called for help when they were caught off guard by the single rainiest day ever recorded in Pensacola.

Deadly storms that started Sunday in Arkansas and Mississippi had moved to other parts of the U.S.A., causing a huge sinkhole in Baltimore and bad flash floods in Florida panhandle.

In Pensacola, people climbed into their attics to get away from fast-rising waters and some people were rescued from the rooftops of their homes.

Roads were destroyed and vehicles were plummeted 25 feet when portions of the Scenic Highway collapsed.
