Stafford County is getting hit by flooding this evening. Several cars have stalled in high water on the roads. An attempted rescue is underway for a person still in a vehicle surrounded by water at Widewater Road and Decatur Road. Units on the scene report that the water is too rapid for their hovercraft; they are requesting a Zodiak boat. Company 5 (Brook) has been paged to bring a zodiak.

There are numerous trees down in Stafford and Spotsylvania counties. We've gotten almost two inches of rain in this area in the last 4 hours, in addition to heavy rain on Thursday and Friday.

Route 1 has been closed near the Stafford-Prince William County line due to high water.

listening to the feed listed on the VA forum, it sounds pretty bad there.
