Last night—less than a week after three people were killed by a lightning strike in Lafayette Square—was an intense one around DC, with frequent lightening, sheets of rain, and alarming instances of flooding. The region received between two and four inches of rainfall; according to the Washington Post, the areas from Alexandria to Northeast DC were hit the hardest. Check out photos and videos of some of the extreme flooding that resulted from the storm:
