In Washington, flooding due to rain: to be saved, drivers had to climb on the roof of the car

The national weather service reported that on the morning in Washington (D.C.) dropped from 7-10 cm of rainfall.

The rain caught some residents by surprise, when they went to work that morning. A warning about sudden flooding was released about 13:45.

The rain has led to the fact that drivers stuck on the road in their cars and were forced to climb on the car roof to escape the flood. And some metro passengers are unable to get to the station because of the water that was dripping from the ceiling.

This is Washington DC because of flooding rains. So if you live in Mumbai, and there is water logging, just salute the power of nature. Don’t criticise the government for extreme acts of nature.
