Authorities say storms that moved through northeast Ohio knocked out power to thousands of customers and caused some flash flooding that could slow the morning commute.
    
Some roads, including a section of Interstate 90, were blocked by flash floods after the storm rolled through Sunday night. Flooding also was reported on I-271 near U.S. 422.
    
Flash flood watches are in effect until 4 p.m. Monday for Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake and Trumbull counties.
    
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that RTA commuter trains were delayed after a retaining wall collapsed near the East 93rd Street bridge, sending debris onto the tracks.
    
Hundreds of northeast Ohio customers were still without power before dawn Monday.
