Washington Police Close Some Flooded Streets

Washington Police said morning rains have driven up water levels across some low-lying roads in the city.

Lieutenant William Chrismon said any road which typically sees extra water during a heavy rain should be crossed with extreme caution Friday morning, if not avoided entirely.

"You have to think before you drive through," said Lt. Chrismon. "It can be a lot deeper than what you see or can't see."

Officers said they are putting up some road blocks to re-route drivers, but expect them to be removed as water quickly recedes through the latter part of the morning.

Lt. Chrismon noted a few areas in particular where drivers are urged to use caution or just avoid:

- 12th and Brown streets

- Bridge Street between 3rd and 5th streets
