MLK Boulevard closed due to flooding

    Philadelphia Traffic headquarter officials have closed a portion of Martin Luther King Boulevard due to flooding.

    The boulevard is closed between Falls Bridge and Montgomery Drive.

    The closure took place last night due to heavy rain from a storm slowly moving through the area.

    The National Weather Service says rain is expected to continue through today, with flooding in areas across the state possible.
