The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning until 4:15 p.m. this afternoon for Fairfax County and other portions of Northern Virginia.

Driving Safety

Please remember to turn on your headlights anytime you turn on your wipers, but also if it’s overcast or rainy — like today. The short video below from the California Department of Motor Vehicles does a good job of showing why you need to turn on your headlights. Plus, it’s also the law!

Several roads in the county have been impacted. Our Police Department is posting updates about roads being affected by high waters, including pictures, on its Facebook page and blog.

Please don’t drive through flooded or rain covered roads. Turn Around. Don’t Drown! More pictures can be found on our Police Department’s Facebook page.
