A wall of slow-moving storms caused widespread flooding in the Washington DC area Monday morning. And a place Capitals fans frequent was one of the spots that took on a lot of water.
The bottom floor of the parking deck at MedStar Capitals Iceplex became a raging river. Twitter user @ColdRushHockey posted the video.

Water was “up to the curbs” in Ballston, a few blocks away from the garage.

Washington/Reagan National Airport reported 3.3 inches of rain in one hour this morning. According to NBC 4 Washington’s Chuck Bell, July 8, 2019 is already one of the top 10 wettest days in July ever since data began being recorded in the late 1880’s.
Canal Road was flooded.
Those who were stranded are being safely escorted off of Canal Road by @dcfireems. Everyone else swam or walked to higher ground on their own. Water slowly receding now. Flash Flood Warnings are a big deal. #DCWX pic.twitter.com/ry80Ls1hfg

Be safe out there. Turn around. Don’t drown.
