At the height of evening rush hour Tuesday, a Washington, D.C. metro station was overtaken over by a torrent of water.
An intense and fast-moving storm hit the nation's capital and the Cleveland Park Metro station was inundated with water in just a few minutes.
The storm brought on hail, rain and flash flooding. The escalators at the Cleveland Park station turned into waterfalls as flooding gushed through the area.
Passengers waded through a foot of water in some places and climbed up the escalator’s current as it continued to pour down.
People took to social media to share amazing video and pictures.
The WMTA closed the station for several hours Tuesday. Incredibly, it reopened the following morning.
