ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- Hurricane Joaquin may have bypassed the D.C. area, but heavy rains have still left high water in Old Town Alexandria.
The normally bustling business district was quiet Saturday afternoon. Some people came to Alexandria just to check out the impact of the storm.
"I predicted maybe about 6-7 inches," said 11-year-old Christopher Brooks.
He may only be 11 years old, but Christopher is certain of his future career. He wants to be a meteorologist.
"You get to go outside and stand in big puddles like this, or hurricanes. It's just amazing," said Christopher.
Christopher is so interested in meteorology that he convinced his father and grandmother to bring him to Old Town Alexandria to see the flooding.
