Flooding Possible

The National Weather Service is forcasting significant rains for the Washington area. We could see up to 3 or 4 inches overnight.

With rain recently, the ground is saturated.

There is a chance of roadway flooding, trees coming down, and associated power outages.

While driving, if you come to a flooded road, DO NOT drive into the water.

The road may be washed away or your car may be swept away. It only takes a few inches of swift moving water to carry a car away.


If you come across downed power lines, stay clear and notify public safety agencies to make them safe.
