Flood warnings are in effect for most of the morning in D.C., Maryland and Virginia Monday as rain continues to fall.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency to recover from the weather, including Monday's flooding and the tornado that hit the state on Sunday.

All flash flood warnings have been since been cancelled.

The warnings were in D.C., Rockville and Silver Spring and are expected to last to the afternoon.

Warnings issued in Virginia included Fairfax County, Arlington County, Falls Church and Alexandria.

Standing water accumulated in multiple areas in the DMV, stranding cars and shutting down multiple roads.
