by Associated Press posted Sep 3 2012 4:16PM
    WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro says service is operating normally following heavy rains that pelted parts of the Washington region.
 
     Caroline Lukas, a spokeswoman for Metro, says service was suspended about 8 p.m. Sunday on the green and yellow lines between the Mt. Vernon Square and George Avenue-Petworth stations due to standing water on the tracks. Lukas says the water was removed by about midnight and service Monday was not affected. 
 
     In northwest Washington, flooding was reported in the Bloomingdale, Adams Morgan and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods.
 
     The National Weather Service says Baltimore's Inner Harbor area and Middleburg in Loudoun County, Va., saw the most rainfall over a 24-hour period from Sunday morning to Monday morning. It says 1.3 inches of rainfall was recorded in Baltimore, and 1.65 inches was recorded in Middleburg.
