Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie would like to advise all residents, especially those in the Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park neighborhoods, that the National Weather Center has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Washington, D.C area. Heavy rain and extremely strong winds are expected from 3:00 PM until late tonight.
Councilmember McDuffie has been in communication with the District Department of Transportation, the Department of Public Works, DC Water and the Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency regarding their storm preparations. Residents should move their vehicles from low-lying flood prone areas, and prepare their homes and basements for the possibility of flooding.
