Hurricane Ida brings flooding to the Beach

Reporter Bruce Leshan of Channel 9 news and cameraman Greg Guise, in the truck, were in town to cover the impacts of the late season storm.



As Hurricane Ida’s remnants became a nor’easter intensifying off the coast of Virginia, the new moon added to a higher than normal high tide in Colonial Beach last night. Mayor Fred Rummage declared a state of emergency in Colonial Beach at the Town Council meeting yesterday evening.
Given the damage done in recent years, Colonial Beach was bound to make news.
A Chanel 9 News crew was on hand yesterday evening just after 6 p.m. for a live shot of the Potomac as it pounded the gazebo on the municipal pier. Reporter Bruce Leshan braved the wind and rain to show viewers how we compared to Ocean City, Md. Although our winds were roughly half the speed of Ocean City’s, our 25 mph winds will surely bring a significant change in the boardwalk if they continue to intensify.  
At high tide, just around 10:30 p.m. last night, boats on trailers in the parking lot of the Yacht Club Marina were submerged in water. Water was washing onto Monroe Bay Ave at Ball Street and on Irving Avenue just past the Wakefield Motel toward the Point, and waves were splashing over the parking lot of St. Johns Condominiums at 715 Washington Ave.
The storm is expected to hang around through Saturday.
