Possible flooding for the District

By Washington Post editors

The National Weather Service issued a coastal flooding warning Wednesday for the District of Columbia. The warning is in place until 6 p.m. and replaces the coastal flood advisory issued Tuesday evening.

At 10:50 a.m. the National Weather Service had not received any official reports of flooding, said meteorologist Brian LaSorsa, but We Love DC posted a video Wednesday of a fast-moving Potomac River and photos showing the boardwalk at Georgetown’s Washington Harbour under water. LaSorsa said that Washington Harbour’s flood gates are in place.

Moderate flooding is expected at the afternoon high tide, which will take place about 5:30 p.m., according to the National Weather Service alert.
