Minor Flooding in Old Town Alexandria

     ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - The Potomac River spilled from its banks and caused minor flooding in Old Town Alexandria.
 
     The city frequently experiences coastal flooding after heavy storms, and Hurricane Sandy was no exception.
 
     Tuesday morning's high tide brought floodwaters up onto King Street, putting the road under water on its easternmost block.
 
     Most businesses were open Tuesday, and the waters drew a fair number of curiosity seekers.
 
     City spokesman Tony Castrilli said the high tides on Thursday are expected to be the most challenging, as rainwater from the Potomac basin makes its way down river.
 
     Still, while the city continues to make preparations and distribute sandbags, Castrilli said experts do not foresee major flooding problems in Old Town.
