Flooding closes Frederick roads
Frederick County officials say small stream flooding has forced the closure of two county roads near Thurmont and Emmitsburg.
Emergency managers across the Washington region prepared Friday for more problems from storms that were expected to produce heavy rain Friday night and Saturday.
The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for much of the Washington region though Saturday evening.
According to The Post's Capital Weather Gang, the 2 to 4 inches expected Friday through Sunday could cause flooding near rivers, streams and creeks.
According to an emergency alert from the District, high winds will also prevent tides from entering intro the ocean as they normally would, exacerbating the potential for flooding.
