Metro’s Red Line trains had to temporarily bypass Cleveland Park Tuesday evening at around 6:40 p.m. because of flash flooding.

The DC Subway Station was closed for nearly two hours until the water was drained and cleared at about 8:30 p.m.

This station is prone to flooding because it is at the bottom of a hill. In these extreme weather situations, it can be engulfed by flash flooding.

I would get terrified by the idea of drowning alive.
