GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

A band of heavy rain caused flash flooding in Greeneville and Greene County Tuesday night.

"As much as 1.5 inches of rain fell in a short amount of time," said Chief Meteorologist Mark Reynolds.  "That was on ground that was already saturated."

In Greeneville, the worst of the flash flooding happened downtown.   "A couple of people had to be rescued from their cars after getting stuck in the high water," said a police dispatcher.

By 9 p.m., water level had receded. 

No injuries or property damage was reported by local law enforcement.
