Georgetown Restaurants Damaged In Potomac River Flooding

Several Georgetown restaurants, shops and businesses were damaged this morning as the Washington Harbor Shopping Plaza flooded under heavy rains. According to the Washington Post, the Potomac River flood stage at Little Falls, near Georgetown, had risen to 11.4 feet by 10 a.m. — at which point an employee at Gelateria Dolce Vita tells the paper that "barstools and a cash register were floating around inside the shop." TBD notes that the floodwall, which normally protects the Harbor from this kind of damage, was not in place this morning. And things look pretty bad for Tony & Joe's.
