Rumble / Strange WeatherHeavy rain caused Potomac River waters to rage through Great Falls National Park in McClean, Virginia, on Sunday, May 20. Water levels were so high that rocks that normally can be seen throughout the area were covered with water. Six inches of rain fell over the course of eight days in the Washington DC area, a news report said. The National Park Service had to close some trails on the Maryland side of the river at the falls on Sunday because of the high water. Downstream, Washington’s East Potomac Park was flooded, with walking and bike paths under water. Credit: PriscillaB1991 via Storyful
