Flooded intersections forced drivers to turn around and kept road crews very busy throughout the day.
Cars were lining up to try and make it through the pools of water, where some areas were deep enough the tires disappeared under the wake, backing up traffic.
Even a line of Entergy vehicles heading out to help those still without electricity were having to push through the water.
"First time I've seen this in Pine Bluff," says Coleman Williams.
Williams works at the Corner Grocery at 13th and Hazel where the waters made it impossible for people to even park, as their lot was submerged in the water.
Owner Mitch Wessels says his store's been here over 30 years, but his parking lot is almost immanuverable for customers' cars.
He says the flooding was impossible to prepare for and much more than they anticipated.
"Just wasn't expecting it. I think we thought we were going to get some rain, but not this much rain all at once," Wessels says.
The rain did quickly drain from the roadways, and most that were flooded earlier are now safe to pass.
