There was a marginal risk for severe storms this evening. Super Doppler 10 Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler said a stalled front over the region coupled with thick humidity created conditions conducive to heavy rain showers.

WAVY viewer Sean Sweeney Ramirez captured video of standing water on Laskin Road in Virginia Beach.

Another WAVY viewer, Patrick Boyle, shared a photo and video of flooding in Avon on Hatteras Island. Meteorologist Deitra Tate says this is likely coastal flooding from the tide and waves, but not from rain.

Hurricane Gert — the second hurricane of the season in the Atlantic Ocean — has begun its turn toward the northeast. The hurricane is not expected to make landfall. The National Hurricane Center says Gert will make a gradual turn toward the northeast with an increase in forward speed through the next couple of days. No coastal watches or warnings are in effect.

Remember to turn around, don’t drown when encountering flooded roads.
