“The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for Alexandria,” the city said in a release. “Avoid small streams and do not drive through water on roadways.”

Rain has started to fall around the city. The last big storm brought in severe power outages in late May. Dominion Energy warned of more outages as the year moves into hurricane season, though none are reported around the city yet as of 3 p.m.

The severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 9 p.m.
