Flooding Leaks Into Washington Metro Station

Flooding Leaks Into Washington Metro Station”

Roads were turned into rivers and torrents of water poured into metro stations when the city received a whole month's worth of rain in just a few hours.

In all, the airport was slammed with about 3.4 inches of rain in a two-hour span, while roughly 6.3 inches fell on Frederick, Maryland, and about 4.5 inches in Arlington, Virginia. The flooding prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood emergency until 1:45 pm (local time). Images posted to social media showed drivers stranded in the floodwaters.

Video shared on social media by residents also document flooded parking garages and even impromptu waterfalls inside the USA capital's Metro transit system. So far none have been reported in Howard County.

The Weather Service warns residents to avoid driving or walking into areas where water covers the roadway as the water depth may be too great to allow for safe crossing.

The US National Archives Building, which houses the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, was also hit hard after the troublesome weather caused electrical outages.
