Emergency responders conducted many water rescues in the Frederick area Wednesday night after a storm caused flash flooding. Ronald Murphy, the Deputy Chief of the Urbana Fire Department, said his units were dispatched shortly after 7:30 p.m., to Peters Road, for a report of lady whose car had got stuck in high water. He said crews rescued her from the roof top of her vehicle. He also said motorists should never attempt to maneuver through high or standing water. "I'll tell you, just don't go through it all, because you don't know whether the road is broken off, or part of the road is missing. You're just asking for disaster," said Murphy.
Water rescues were also reported in New Market, Montgomery County, Md., and Loudoun County, Virginia.
