Dozens of people have been displaced in Prince George's County after their homes flooded.
Flash floods hit Berwyn Heights hard this morning, filling the basements of about two-dozen homes with water. Mark Brady with the fire department says the homes are around the 8900 block of 59th Avenue, and it's unclear at this time exactly how many people have been displaced.
"We estimate it could be anywhere between 50 and 75 people. Some people were at home and some people were at work and might not even know flooding has occurred," he says.
Brady says there's a temporary reception area at Berwyn Heights Elementary school for those displaced, and that the county, Red Cross and the town of Berwyn Heights are working together to ensure those residents have shelter.
In addition, the flash flooding has stranded many motorists in Prince George's County today. Brady says there have been about two-dozen rescues, but no reported injuries.
