High winds have brought down trees and closed a number of roads around the McLean area Monday.
As of about 2:30 p.m., Fairfax County police reported the following closures:
- Old Dominion Drive at Franklin Park Road due to fallen tree
- 6700 block of Old Chesterbrook Road due to fallen tree
- 7800 block of Georgetown Pike due to fallen tree on power line
Along with the road closures, more than 250 Dominion customers were without power Monday afternoon. The winds are starting to die down, but additional wind damage is possible as strong gusts continue.
The strongest gust reported so far today in Fairfax County was a 58 mile per hour gust at Dulles International Airport at 10:19 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.
The highest winds have likely occurred, so we've started to downgrade our warnings and advisories. Still, the rest of the afternoon will be pretty windy, and additional trees/power lines may still come down, so be careful out there. pic.twitter.com/pmnxuhLm8f
