Flash flooding overwhelmed the Cleveland Park Metro station on June 21, 2016, turning the escalators into waterfalls and forcing passengers to slog through standing water.
Trains bypassed the station for about two hours during the flooding in Washington DC.
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.
