The melting snow piled along the roadside turned to slush as temperatures rose and more rain fell. What was left behind was a giant puddle that covered at least two lanes.

"I just got off work and I was going to get some gas and I was like, 'is it flooding over here like what's going on?'" Fairborn resident Sarah Ratliff told News Center 7's John Bedell.

"I've never seen it quite like this," Beavercreek resident Greg Trout said.

Some people, thinking a water main had burst, called police.

The water mostly receded by about 2 p.m.
