Flood warning until 10 a.m. in Northern Virginia

Flash flood warnings and watches in Northern Virginia expired at 6 a.m. Wednesday, but the National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the area until 10 a.m.

Small streams in Manassas, Manassas Park and throughout Prince William County are at risk, reports the weather service.

The warning is a continuation of alerts that began earlier this week as heavy rains fell across the region. Prince William County was especially hard-hit, with numerous road closures and flooding problems.

On Tuesday, two fatalities on I-95 were blamed on wet roadways, and residences in Manassas were evacuated after high water was reported in Lake Jackson. Washouts were reported on rural road,s and school bus service was canceled at three schools in the county.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue Wednesday into the evening.
