Flood Warning Extended To 3 PM In Most Of Frederick County

A flash flood emergency has been declared for the Washington, D.C., metro area until 2 p.m. Monday by the National Weather Service. In an hour, a total of 3.3 inches of rain fell at DCA - a new record in the agency's books.

"If you are in the warned area move to higher ground immediately", according to the National Weather Service.

"Travel will be EXTRAORDINARILY risky", the National Weather Service warned on Twitter.

One video taken captured a rush of water breaking down from the surface and penetrating the concrete ceiling at the Virginia Square metro station in Arlington, Virginia.

United States court to decide future of Obamacare
The law's supporters say Congress clearly didn't want "Obamacare" dismantled when it eliminated the tax in 2017. The GOP succeeded only in eliminating the penalty later that year, leaving the rest of the ACA intact.

Emergency services used an inflatable boat to rescue one motorist stranded in their auto near the National Mall. So far none have been reported in Howard County. A Flash Flood Watch was replaced with a Flash Flood Warning for parts of Maryland.

Over yonder in Maryland's Frederick County, Baker Park was yet again flooded. Photos shared by reporters show that the basement began to flood before officials acted quickly in an effort to stave off water damages. Airports and rail networks were also hit, causing delays.

Flooding led to electrical outages that closed the National Archives Museum, according to a statement from the museum.
