PHOENIX — The Latest on monsoon storm that hit the Phoenix metro area on Thursday evening (all times local):

6:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service says a flash flood warning remains in effect until 8:30 p.m. Thursday for some cities east of Phoenix as a monsoon storm rolls through the metro area.

The storm dumped almost two inches of rain in many areas of metro Phoenix on Thursday evening and also caused power outages and flight delays at Sky Harbor International Airport.

An airport spokeswoman says flights were grounded about 5:30 p.m. until weather cleared.

Lightning was reported in the area of the airport along with wind gusts of up to 50 mph.

Departing and arriving flights had resumed by 6:15 p.m. with some delays still in effect.

But outside Terminal 4 at the airport, manhole covers were overflowing with water from the storm and that snarled traffic as drivers tried to navigate the road to pick up or drop off passengers.
