In what’s become at least an annual occurrence in Alexandria, heavy rainfall led to severe flooding for many Alexandrians, particularly in Del Ray neighborhood.

City leadership has promised to accelerate the timetable for planned flooding mitigation efforts, but warned that major infrastructure projects will still take some time to process.

Katie Waynick, who runs the DrainALX Twitter account, said many neighbors around Del Ray are frustrated by the repeated flooding and, year after year, feel worn down by repeated home damage.

Has any of the flooding in Alexandria impacted you or caused damage to your property?
