Highest winds coming at 8pm they say through to early morning hours. Could be a scary night for a lot of people in this area so play it safe and start setting up sleeping bags as low as you can get (basement if possible).

A couple streets in Huntington (sp.?) are being evacuated right now.

These are the MD ones:

Yes this, I was hoping we could just sleep in the living room, but we are surrounded by large trees on all sides. Going to start setting up in the basement.

So far it hasn't been too bad here, but the real high winds haven't started, yet. We're playing it safe and sleeping in the basement tonight.

It's starting to get pretty windy here in Brambleton area. For the first time, I'm liking the little trees planted by the builder. If they go over, they'll be about a 1/4 mile down the road before they land.

Power flickered a few hours ago, but nothing since then. Fingers crossed!

Power went out briefly about 15 mins. ago - came right back on - that was it - Knock on wood. It's just a matter of time though I'm afraid.

Ocean City, which has really been hammered, has not lost power.

Just got a report from a relative out in Haymarket that power's out there.

I'm pretty sure everyone knows about this, but in case someone here did not:

You can zoom in quite a bit and identify neighborhoods where power is out.

That neighborhood often floods as it's right off Cameron Run. New Alexandria between Belle Haven and Belle View off the Parkway South of Old Town is another one that frequently floods.
