Heavy rain on ground already soaked from Tropical Storm Isaias created flash flood conditions in and around Richmond, Virginia, on August 6.
Jim Krogsund joked that they’d had a “little bit of rain” in Manakin-Sabot as he recorded a virtual river of floodwater surging through his yard. “This is the most rain we’ve ever had in our yard,” he says in the video. Adding, “this is not a creek,” as he films the torrent of water.
His video also shows a boxing ring he keeps in his yard, with water submerging it up to the first rope.
Flash flooding warnings were still in effect on August 7 for central and eastern Virginia, as further showers and storms were expected, the National Weather Service said. Credit: Jim Krogsund via Storyful
