Though spring weather is getting kinder in Washington DC, it is not without its share of bad weather. Case in point, an article in The Washington Post noted that:
Residents in the Washington region stepped out into clearing skies and drying streets Thursday as they assessed the damage caused by the previous days of torrential rains and flash floods.
Utility spokesman Jim Neustadt said the storm was particularly problematic because it dumped heavy rain on two reservoirs simultaneously.
The excessive rainfall also caused overflows Wednesday night at five WSSC facilities in Prince George’s and Montgomery, where more than 5 million gallons of untreated sewage poured out of pumping stations.
Damage from flooding was the main concern that residents in Washington had to deal with after the downpour, but with such hard rain, you shouldn't rule out roof damage as well.
