BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–Buffalo Fire responded to two late-night water rescues involving high water at viaducts.

The first one came just after 11:30 p.m. at Niagara and Tonawanda Streets.

Rescue One and the Swift Water Rescue Team rescued two people who were trapped in the rising waters from a pickup truck, according to officials.

Just before midnight, Ladder 15 rescued two people trapped in a vehicle by extending their aerial ladder and bringing them to safety.

Officials tell News 4 Buffalo Sewer worked to reopen those viaducts.

Later in the morning, we found some vehicles stuck in the area of Amherst and Tonawanda streets.

Buffalo wasn’t the only place to see flooding, though. The video below shows what part of the Town of Tonawanda looked like.
