WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Early Friday morning, we received reports of water rescues, accidents and flooded roads. Monika Samtani and the rest of our crews kept an eye out for major traffic incidents in the DC metro area. Here are some of the incidents we found:

D.C. police say emergency crews rescued a driver at approximately 7 a.m. at Overlook Avenue SW when his or her car was stuck in water.

As of 6:37 a.m., Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services were called to at least 7 water rescue dispatches:

  1. One in the 2200 block New Cut Rd. at Frederick Rd
  2. One in the 14500 block of Berryville Rd
  3. One in the 8500 block of Scott Drive in Rockville near Route 28, where the car was not occupied
  4. One in the 11200 block of Game Preserve Road with no occupants found in the vehcile
  5. One at Barnesville Rd and Peach Tree Rd., where a disabled vehicle was found and the driver was okay,
  6. Another in the 8600 block of Bradley Blvd. in Bethesda
  7. One at Horse Center Rd and Quince Orchard Rd. (in the last two cases, people made it out of the cars on their own)

In comparison, MCFRS says it responded to more than 30 water-related calls and 10 rescues on April 30th.

Fairfax County police also say they made water rescues at Fox Mill and Shady Mill and Homewood Court and Lawyers Rd as well as Lawyers Rd and Hunter Mill.

Trains and rail systems also experienced problems. Shortly before 10 a.m. Metro was single tracking Red Line trains between Twinbrook and Grosvenor stations due to high water on the tracks. Officials asked riders to expect delays in both directions.

There were also delays of 15 -to 30 minutes on MARC Penn Line due to Amtrak signal issues and a mudslide on track 2 in the Baltimore terminal. Metro was honoring MARC tickets. All service was suspended on the Brunswick line due to trees down, and the Camden line was running up to 30 minutes late.
