Brief But Powerful Storms Cause Damage in South Reston

Back-to-back thunderstorms that ripped through Reston late Thursday afternoon left behind noticeable damage.

The Capital Weather Gang said the strong winds may have been a microburst.

The high winds knocked over many trees, and power is out in more than 2,500 Reston-area homes, said Dominion Virginia Power.

Here is what you need to know:

Many of the power outages appear to be along Lawyers and Glade Roads.

A tree fell on a power pole on Fox Mill Road near Fox View Way, knocking out power. Fox Mill Road was closed as of 6:30 p.m.

Reston Parkway Southbound is very backed up due to traffic lights not working. Fairfax County Police are on the scene directing traffic.

A downed tree is blocking Glade Drive near Millennium Lane.

So far, there are no reports of injuries from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue.

If you have to be somewhere, please check road conditions before you go.
