ST. FRANCIS - The heavy rain and hail caused panic at a south side parking lot.

Clogged drains during Friday's severe storms caused water runoff to rise near Whitnall and Layton.
 
Mary Bell's Mercedes was damaged by the water two feet deep.
 
Bell was at a nail salon when she noticed the heavy rain and hail. The next thing she knew her car was covered in water.
 
"The roads were white and then it rained again and by this time it was up to my doors." Bell said.
 
Bell said her car is considered a complete loss from water damage.
 
A total of six cars were damaged.
