Flooding Fears In Huntington

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- Homeowners in Huntington are still recovering from flooding earlier this month. Now they're bracing themselves for the possibility of more.

On Arlington Terrace residents have been warned to move their cars to higher ground and clean out their basements for possible flooding Friday night.

Many basements are pretty empty. A number of homeowners lost valuables, including water heaters and furnaces, when their basements filled with nearly 4-6 feet of water earlier this month.

182 homes were damaged when flood waters rose earlier this month.

Many residents expressed frustration at Fairfax County officials who told them there this is no money to build a flood wall that they say would keep their neighborhood dry.
