WASHINGTON (AP) - Storms brought heavy rainfall to the Mid-Atlantic region, breaking records at two area airports.

The National Weather Service reports that rainfall records were set Monday at Thurgood Marshall Baltimore-Washington International and Ronald Reagan National airports.

Meteorologist Brian Lasorsa says 2.49 inches of rain fell Monday at Reagan, breaking the previous record of 2.2 inches set in 1907. He says BWI saw 2.5 inches on Monday, breaking a 1979 record of 2.14 inches.

The storms brought down trees around the region, including one that fell onto a bus at 15th and K streets northwest in downtown Washington. Metro Transit Police tweet that no one was injured.

In Maryland, Montgomery County fire department spokesman Pete Piringer tweets that a woman was rescued from a car stranded in high water late Monday.
