TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Heavy rain moving through the Tampa Bay area has caused a headache for drivers.

In St. Petersburg, the off-ramp on I-275 south to 54th Avenue South is closed due to flooding. A traffic camera showed emergency crews aiding a driver whose car was stuck in the water.

The lanes on I-275 at 5th Avenue North were also flooded. Drivers were spotted slowly moving through the area.

In Dade City, a large tree fell on 13th Street, between Florida Avenue and Howard Avenue. Police asked drivers to stay out of the area while they work to remove the tree.
