WASHINGTON, D.C. - Thunderstorms and heavy rain caused some major problems during rush hour Tuesday evening.
The Arlington County Fire Department says they had to deploy two boats to rescue 40 people from 25 stranded vehicles in the Northbound lane of the George Washington Parkway, near Reagan National Airport.
The fire department says the water reached the level of the steering wheel in some of the vehicles. One of their rescues included a baby.
Fortunately, there were no injuries or medical emergencies reported.
Several cars were also flooded along Martha Custis Drive in Alexandria.
