WASHINGTON, D. C. (Monday, August 3, 2020) ––It is here. The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for much of central and southern Maryland, Washington, D.C., as well as portions of northeastern Virginia along the I-95 corridor, as Tropical Storm Isaias approaches the area. “Driving conditions will be dangerous in places where surge water covers the road,” warns the NWS. As a result, “emergency plans should include the potential for major flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues are likely.”
“This is a potentially dangerous situation for Washington metro area residents, and a particularly treacherous scenario for area motorists and commuters,” said John B. Townsend II, AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Manager of Public and Government Affairs. “In addition to coping with and navigating through roadways inundated with three to six inches of flooding rain, there is also the matter of tropical-storm-force wind gusts. ‘Exercise extreme caution in place where flood waters may cover escape routes,’ as the NWS is forewarning. “Streets and parking lots can easily become rivers of moving water with underpasses submerged.’”
Area residents should brace themselves for and prepare/plan for dangerous wind of equivalent strong tropical storm force. “Move to safe shelter before the wind becomes hazardous,” warns the National Weather Service (NWS). AAA Mid-Atlantic offers facts and tips to drivers and homeowners to help them cope with Tropical Storm Isaias.
