Numerous roads in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties were impassible due to high water, and in some places, crews searched submerged vehicles to make sure no one is trapped.

In just three hours, the Montgomery County Fire Department was dispatched to 150 calls for service, including between 25 and 30 water rescues.

Heavy rain also led to flooding that closed a number of streets in St. Mary’s County Thursday afternoon, the Seventh District Volunteer Fire Department wrote on Facebook.

The rain that moved through Thursday also caused trouble for much of the northeast region. Amtrak trains in Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington were delayed due to flooding certain tracks.
