PHOTOS: Occoquan River Swollen After Storm

The river overflowed its banks in several areas.

After about 36 hours of steady rain, the Occoquan River has swollen to the point where it is overflowing its banks in low-lying areas. 

The water has covered portions of the docks at Lake Ridge Park, and left part of Brambles' parking lot in Occoquan submerged. 

As the rain continues, the water will not have much of a chance to dissipate. The ongoing concern in the town of Occoquan is runoff from the two creeks that run down the hill. 

"We are keeping an eye on Occoquan's two creeks to minimize the possibility of culvert blockage, and encourage everyone to exercise caution if you find it necessary to go outside," Occoquan Mayor Earnie Porta said in an email update. 

Tanyard Hill Road is open, but a portion of Occoquan Road is closed to incoming traffic. Stoplights are also out along Old Bridge Road between Minnieville Road and Rolling Brook Drive. Please treat such intersections as four-way stops in the absence of a police officer to direct traffic.
