Arlington and the rest of the D.C. area is now under a Flood Warning.
The National Weather Service says urban areas and streams are in danger of flooding as heavy rain continues to fall. Already parts of Old Town Alexandria have flooded and some streams in Arlington are overflowing their banks.
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN STERLING VIRGINIA HAS ISSUED A
* FLOOD WARNING FOR URBAN AREAS AND SMALL STREAMS…
* UNTIL 300 PM EDT
* AT 903 AM EDT… RADAR INDICATED HEAVY RAIN OF UP TO ONE INCH HAD FALLEN IN THE METRO AREA IN THE LAST TWO HOURS. SIMILAR RAINFALL RATES ARE EXPECTED FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL HOURS… WHICH WILL CAUSE STREAMS TO RISE OUT OF THEIR BANKS AND CAUSE FLOODING IN URBAN AREAS.
A FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR HAS BEEN REPORTED. STREAM RISES WILL BE SLOW. HOWEVER… ALL INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS IMMEDIATELY.
MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE… TURN AROUND… DONT DROWN.
