Thousands Without Power in Tysons Area

Update at 11 p.m. — Power was restored earlier tonight. The cause of the outage was an issue with a transmission line.

Earlier: The Dominion power outage map is red throughout the Tysons area — primarily east of the Beltway — as today’s storms leave thousands without power.

All of Pimmit Hills, McLean, and much of Merrifield and Falls Church have been left in the dark. The cause of the outage is still listed as “pending investigation.” The restoration time was estimated as between 5-10 p.m.

The area is under a flood watch as downpours continue from Hurricane Zeta, closing down several roads in the area.

“I can tell you our crews are out working on the problem, trying to get everyone’s power back,” said Dominion spokeswoman Peggy Fox.
