This is scary. I know there is a creek between the Woodmont Golf and Congressional Towers but I didnt think it would overflow and flood Congressional Towers.

The video of Rock Creek Woods Apts is unbelievable. I didnt know there is a creek there.
Why is the white oak rec center being used when there is a rec center in the neighborhood right there on Twinbrook Parkway?
