Officers pulled the man from the water and he was pronounced dead.

Storms rolled through the city Tuesday, bringing nearly 2 inches of rain in about an hour and a half and causing widespread flooding. It’s unclear whether the man’s death was connected to the heavy rainfall, though police said there are no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death, police said.
