Washington area hit by heavy rains and flash floods


Torrential morning rains unleashed chaos in the nation’s capital on Monday, turning Metro stations into indoor showers and sending flash floods through suburban neighborhoods, where the authorities said they had mounted dozens of water rescues.

The National Weather Service said on Monday that a flash flood warning was in effect for the District of Columbia, after more than three inches of rain had fallen on Reagan National Airport in one hour earlier in the day.
