Rain lashes Northern Virginia

For the fourth day today it had been incessant non-stopping rains which rendered several routes impasse including a partial closure of i495 and 95 because of severe flooding at Woodbridge VA Holly Acres Mobile Park where people had been summoned an evacuation forthwith late night yesterday.

Occquan is almost resembling another big roaring ocean inland. The weather is still inclement. Schools which have recently opened for the year had opted to stay close due to the inclement weather conditions until further announcements from the weather department and  improvements.

I had an interesting trip from Reston to Richmond yesterday. Almost had three to four detours because of almost flash flood situations en route before reaching the destination. Torrential Downpour is the one we would have heard and read of it. But this was the one which was felt yesterday.
