The Alexandria Fire Department has rescued a woman in a stalled car near the Alexandria waterfront, as the City contends with a continuing Flash Flood Watch and rising water levels.
The driver called 911 at 10:46 a.m. after getting stuck on Strand Street, and said that she couldn’t open her car door because of the rising water, according to AFD Senior Public Information Officer Raytevia Evans.
AFD’s Inland Water Rescue Team arrived at the scene at 10:51 a.m., and helped the driver out of her car.
“The water was at the door or vehicle and she couldn’t get out,” Evans said.
The Flash Flood Watch was issued yesterday and remains in effect throughout the evening.
High water levels have not been reported in other areas of the City, Evans said.
“High tide in the Old Town area was at around 11 a.m. this morning,” she said. “We’re monitoring the rest of the City, but right now we’re not seeing any abnormal water levels in some of the usual places where we get flooding, like around Cameron Run, or Eisenhower Avenue and Telegraph Road.”
The fire department is asking residents to stay informed on local weather patterns and to stay away from standing water.
“Make sure you’re paying attention to local weather reports about the flooding,” Evans said. “If you see standing water do not walk through it. Do not drive through it. We’re asking people to be careful. Stay vigilant. If you find yourself in a situation please to call 911.”
