WASHINGTON - The US capital appeared to have escaped the worst of monster storm Sandy on Tuesday, although concerns remained about the potential for severe flooding along the Potomac River.

Washington suffered high winds and rains that brought down trees on some homes and flooded a few roads. But the area got off relatively lightly compared to New Jersey, where Sandy came ashore on Monday night, and battered New York City.

As of 2 am EDT (0600 GMT) Tuesday, more than 4 inches (10.2 cm) of rain had fallen over the course of the storm in Washington, the National Weather Service said late Tuesday morning.

Although Sandy has moved on from the area, weather officials said flooding could still be a concern.
