Flood warnings issued for parts of the carolinas

A Flash Flood Watch will be put into place Tuesday around 3 p.m. for counties north of D.C. and along the Maryland and Pennsylvania line.

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for this area until 11 p.m. tonight.

Additional scattered thunderstorms were expected Monday afternoon into the evening across the entire county, according to an alert from the service.

Many roads were flooded, the weather service said.

Up to four inches could fall in localized areas, and water levels are already at high levels from recent rain. Some drivers ignored the warnings and drove through the water anyways.

A flood watch is in effect for Arlington, Fairfax and Loudoun counties and the city of Alexandria from Thursday afternoon through Friday evening. Monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location that is prone to flooding.

At 10 a.m., the river was measuring at 10.65 feet at the New Munster gauge.

Over in northern Idaho, Lake Pend Oreille (pawn'-duh-ray) is expected to reach flood stage on Thursday.
