WILD storms with heavy rain have caused flash flooding in Adelaide, with the State Emergency Service attending more than 500 requests for help from residents and businesses.

SES duty officer Bob Stevenson said the flash flooding was widespread across the metropolitan area and in the Adelaide Hills.

"The State Emergency Service, the CFS and CMS have responded to about 500 requests for assistance," Mr Stevenson said.

"We've had over 200 SES volunteers busy, with quite a bit of flooding of yards and people's homes," he said.

"There's an area called Waterfall Gully Road, in the foothills, where one of the creeks comes down, and there's quite a few houses affected there ... there was 40 or so houses affected on that one road alone."

Mr Stevenson said the calls for help started to ease off at 2am today.
