Though there are harder hit areas along the east coast of the US from both Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, Northern Virginia hasn't escaped the rath of the storm. This morning I decided to head out to take a look at Occcoquan River to see how she was faring with all of the rain.
The historic Town of Occoquan was flooded last night from Balliwick Creek (not the river itself) overflowing but fortunately this morning the water had receded from the streets. However the Occoquan River is still raging and with it still raining everyone is on high alert.
Watching the Occoquan River raging was a reminder that when water rises it knows no boundaries and if you are in the way it won't stop for you. Hope all my Active Rain friends up and down the east coast are safe as we wait for the last of this lingering storm to leave the area.
