The storms brought over an inch of rain to parts of the region. The downpours caused flooding conditions in parts of the area like in Montgomery County where occupants of a Rockville apartment complex were trapped in their homes by the flood waters.

A 19-year-old teen was found dead and another person remains unaccounted for after flood waters related to the remnants of Ida swept through an apartment complex in Rockville during the morning hours.

FOX 5's Tucker Barnes says the morning storms were round one of what we can expect today. The heart of the storm will move from the west across our area later this afternoon.

By Wednesday afternoon, the remnants of Ida triggered multiple tornado warnings across the D.C. region.

Flash Flood Warnings will be in place for much of the region for most of the day as the region braces for round two of the storm system that will bring more heavy rain and thunderstorms.
