Rain causes accidents, standing water on region's roads

The rain over the past day or so has soaked our region's roads going into this morning's commute. This, coupled with the usual congestion, could lead to a slow trek. Here's some of the places this might impact you -- and post your own experiences below!

-- An accident on 395 north just after the Beltway and another one a mile beyond that.
-- 66 East is backed up from Nutley Street for approximately 7 miles.
-- 95 North heading towards the District is bad south of Lorton.
-- Fog has been reported further outside the Beltway

The District
-- The Amtrak fire at New Carrollton.
-- Accidents were reported at 1700 G St. and Sixth Street and Constitution Avenue NW.
-- A disabled car on 395 southbound at 12th Street.
-- Orange traffic cones were scattered by the wind and sent all over Rock Creek Parkway this morning, so anyone heading south from the zoo area should be aware.

-- High water has caused problems at MD 450 east and west at Huntwood Drive.
--295 northbound at Suitland Parkway, a disabled car will slow things down here.
--The Eighth Street ramp and a portion of the approaching right lane on I-395 off the 11th Street Bridge is closed due to a vehicle fire.
