Though the worst of the flooding is over, the weather service said, flooding is expected to continue throughout the night, especially near streams.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for portions of Maryland starting at 3 p.m. Tuesday and running until 1 a.m. Wednesday. They said up to 70 homes in that area were unreachable as a result to flooded roads.

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash flooding which can be life-threatening.

After storms earlier in the week, heavy rain forecasted for the region on Wednesday afternoon poses a risk of isolated flooding. Rapidly rising flood waters may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage.
