Alexandria Fire Department rescued several people Sunday, weekly forecast looks stormy

(Updated 7:15 p.m.) The Alexandria Fire Department responded to 21 weather-related calls for service in the massive thunderstorm early Sunday morning, including three rescues that saved several people.

Two of the rescues were in Alexandria — one vehicle on N. Quaker Lane and a stalled vehicle on the George Washington Memorial Parkway, AFD senior public information officer Raytevia Evans told ALXnow.

The third incident was a swift water rescue in Fairfax County, Evans said.

“Do not drive in standing water,” Evans told ALXnow. “And please sign up for emergency alerts in the city.”

Evans said AFD is working in coordination with the Alexandria Office of Emergency Management to respond to emergency calls for service.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for Alexandria that remains in effect until 8:15 p.m.
