The intersection of Circuit Avenue, Narragansett Avenue, and Kennebec Avenue flooded Saturday morning due to heavy rainfall.
In a post on their Facebook page, the Oak Bluffs police department snapped a photo of the flooding.
“We don’t see this everyday,” the post read.
There is also extensive flooding on Beach Road and Five Corners in Vineyard Haven.
Thomas Hodgson, a West Tisbury resident who is one of the Island’s weather data collectors for the National Weather Service, told The Times two inches of rain has fallen since 7 am this morning.
“It’s a great deal wetter now than it was when I went out at 11,” he said. “We’ve had 2 inches of rain since 7 am this morning. When I woke up at 7, there were a couple of teensy-weensy drops.”
As of 4 pm, the National Weather Service reported that 3.52 inches of rain fell in Edgartown and 3.29 inches fell in Tisbury.
