EL PASO, Texas--The borderland is under another flash flood watch until 6 a.m. Friday.
Parts of west Texas and southern New Mexico are being affected.
It started raining around 3 a.m. Thursday.
Some business owners have laid out sandbags around a parking lot in order to prevent their office building from getting flooded.
People were hit by a heavy downpour of rain, which flooded much of Interstate 10 near Piedras Street.
"We live in a dry city so I think a little bit of rain wouldn't be bad," said central El Pasoan Luis Aguire.
Cars were at a standstill, forcing some people to walk out of their cars.
Some took the risk and drove into the flooded road, which police said is very dangerous.
Although El Paso water utilities were able to drain the water out within several hours, some people weren't to happy to see the roads flood once again.
"That freeway was a pond," said El Pasoan Jason Daniels, I don't know if they need more drainage or, I think, I honestly think they need more drainage."
El Paso Water Utilities says it's working hard to make sure events like yesterday and the historic flood of 2006 don't happen again.
Others aren't going to wait and are taking extra precautionary measures.
"I think they are doing what they [water utilities] can," said Daniels "I see the crews out there and you know, but since it hasn't rained that often I think that it's hard for them to mobilize."
