WASHINGTON - Storms moving through the D.C. region have led to flood warnings and watches on Thursday.
A Flash Flood Watch was in effect starting at 2 p.m. Thursday for Washington D.C. and many areas of Maryland and Virginia, but was canceled later Thursday night.
The rain caused flooding in Fairfax County and Prince William County Thursday evening. Some road closures and vehicle rescues took place Thursday evening due to high water.
