Heavy Rain Brings Flash Flooding to Alexandria

Heavy rainfall inundated roads in Alexandria, Virginia, prompting flash flood warnings on September 16.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for the area earlier on Thursday, urging people to avoid floodwaters and heed road closures.

Later that evening, the NWS said that most rain had come to an end, “although a few areas of light showers are possible through the night”.
