Heavy rain and flash flooding in and around the Nation’s Capitol have stranded motorists as rescuers work to reach those caught in high water. Photos published by NBC Washington show roads cut in half near Potomac, Maryland, folks stranded on top of cars, and a subway turned canal.
Flash Flood Emergency for the Washington DC metro area this morning!

This is Washington, D.C. this morning. Flash flooding occurred in the entire DC, MD and VA areas. I had to pull off the highway to get safety. Climate change is not a myth. pic.twitter.com/qbLjdE549s
