Source: The Hill | July 8, 2019 | Jordan Fabian

Heavy rains on Monday in Washington, D.C. caused minor flooding in the basement of the White House.

Water pooled on the floor of the underground area of the West Wing where print, radio and television journalists have workspace.


Three to four inches of rain fell in about an hour on Monday morning, causing widespread flooding across the region.

First responders had to carry out water rescues of drivers on Constitution Ave., NW, located just blocks south of the White House.

The press workspace in the White House basement often floods during heavy rains.
