On that day, the Brazil City Fire Department Assistant Chief saw several vehicles throughout the city that were stranded due to flooding waters.
On Monday, Bell saw three vehicles stranded near the intersection of Jackson and Leavitt streets, but the memory lingers.
"It's usually not this bad, but we had a lot of rain in a short period of time," Bell told The Brazil Times as he and other firefighters navigated their way through the area.
Heavy rains piled up at the intersection of the street Monday morning, causing the road to overflow with water that was knee deep in some areas.
Teresa McClelland, who lives in Brazil and was taking her mother to work, couldn't tell how deep the water was at the intersection as she drove through the downpour.
"It was raining real hard," McClelland said. "I thought I could get through."
McClelland's vehicle stalled -- as did two others.
The rain took out a two-block section of Jackson Street Monday morning.
"I've never seen it like this," McClelland said. "This road gets water on it, but not like this. It's never flooded this bad."
As the rainwater moved down street drains, firefighters moved the three vehicles, one of which started up.
It took approximately 15-20 minutes for the water to dissipate.
"Nothing was really clogging the drains," BCPD firefighter Tobey Archer said.
