It's one of the busiest travel days of the year, and roads here in Southern New England are going to be pounded by the rain.

By 7 am drivers were already well on their way to their holiday destinations. They were met with ponding and flooding on the highways as well as bad visibility. Several accidents had been reported.

According to AAA 43 million people are expected to travel over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The overwhelming majority, about 39 million people, will be on the roads.
