Flooding Thursday blocked access to the After School Learning Tree in San Diego just as the children were preparing to leave for the day, the television station reported.

"I kinda expected it 'cause the rain was super heavy this morning, but I didn't expect this long," parent Jie Kyn told KNSD.

Kyn said she had to wait more than an hour to pick up her son and daughter, the television station reported.

Eventually, the water levels receded enough so the children could be transported by van to a nearby train station to reunite with their parents, KNSD reported.
