MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A flash flood warning took over parts of Shelby and Tipton counties on Monday night.

Memphis police officers responded to several reports of flooding around the city. 

People living near the 600 block of Mountain Terrace Street tell us their neighborhood flooded, stranding cars on the road and trapping people inside their homes.

At least one driver did the right thing by turning around instead of trying to get through high water.

"It always floods right up on there," Shawn Granberry said. "It was so flooded, it was over the mailbox sign."

People in this neighborhood have reason to be nervous during heavy rain. Dozens of them had to be evacuated when more than 25 homes flooded in September of last year.
