Waters from the Potomac River had already begun washing up on the shores in front of the Washington Harbour complex early this morning. The flood gates that can prevent the kind of flooding that plagued the area last month, are erected on the right.
At the Washington Harbour complex in Georgetown, the effects of the rising water level were already evident early this morning, conjuring up images of the flooding that inundated the retail and office complex last month.
The boardwalk was completely drenched and the choppy water was crashing up over it in several spots, leaving some very large puddles. The puddles were forming close to the flood gates that Washington Harbour put up here to prevent wster damage.
Those same gates being down is what led to the flooding the complex saw just last month when flood waters dumped about 10 feet of water in this area.
While the National Weather Service says this high tide alone shouldn't reach levels that would affect Washington Harbour, but the continued rains throughout the day could cause flash flooding in some areas.
