Heavy rains lead to rude awakening for hotel guests
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Flooding from heavy rains has led to the evacuation of a hotel outside the nation’s capital.
WUSA-TV reported that the Radisson Hotel in Rockville, Maryland, was evacuated about 3:45 a.m. Monday.
The hotel was about 85 percent full at the time. The flooding was caused by an overflowing storm drain that could not keep up with the volume of water.
Montgomery County fire and rescue teams arrived to pump water from the building. No injuries were reported.
Flooding had also shut down roads and stranded some motorists in the region around Washington, D.C.
