Thunderstorms cause flash flooding in DC region

- Thunderstorms passing through the D.C. area led to severe flooding Friday evening.

According to the National Weather Service, Doppler radar showed that two to four inches of rain fell in the areas affected by a Flash Flooding Warning that was issued until Friday night. The heaviest rain has ended, but creeks and streams were continuing to rise. There were also reports that Rock Creek Parkway was closed due to high water, and Beach Drive between Porter Street and Rock Creek Parkway was also closed due to flooding.

A spokesperson for Reagan National Airport said they were experiencing departure and arrival delays on Friday due to lightning that was recorded within three miles of the airport.

FOX 5’s Anjali Hemphill witnessed flooded roadways in the District, including Military Road in Northwest D.C.
