Tuesday evening's storm in the Phoenix area made history, according to the National Weather Service.

More than 2 inches of rain pounded west and central Phoenix in about an hour, creating what the National Weather Service calls a "100-year event," meaning the amount of rainfall has a 1 percent chance of happening in any given year in a given location.

The downpour brought flooding on major arteries. A portion of Interstate 17 near Indian School Road was closed because of high waters, resulting in major rush-hour traffic delays.
