Rain, melt bring minor flooding

Several waterfront sections of Alexandria and Georgetown have experienced minor flooding as the combination of rain and snow melting near the headwaters of the Potomac has sent water surging over the river banks.

In neither case has the flooding reached the point of having a serious impact on traffic, authorities on either side of the river said.

However, flooding has caused road closures in western Maryland and on the Eastern Shore.

Not on car traffic maybe, but many bike trails are several feet under water.
