On Monday morning, heavy rains turned the metaphorical swamp into a literal swamp, as rains destroyed highways, leaked down into the metro, and flooded parts of the White House. Journalists and locals shared the devastation of the monsoon for all to see on Twitter.
Canal Road across from the Potomac River just north of Georgetown flooded, stranding drivers who stood on their cars to avoid getting swept away. Washington, D.C. Fire and EMS escorted them to safety. Commuters driving on I-66 seem to have gotten swept away by the current.
Unsuck D.C. Metro reported that the metro is both flooding and on fire.
It looks like President Donald Trump will have to drain that swamp ASAP.
