Earlier this morning, thousands of people across the state woke up to the reality that they couldn't make a cup of coffee or a hot shower, after heavy storms rolled through last night. The outages even closed Wilderness Elementary in Spotsylvania for the day. Dominion Virginia Power's customers were hardest hit around Richmond.
More storms forecast today mean a threat of flash flooding on some are roads and a threat for the VRE. VDOT also tells us that you should slow down and look out for standing water. Last night's storms also caused some tree limbs to fall. If you get onto a road that wasn't posted as closed, but is flooded or blocked, turn around and report it to 1-800-FOR-ROAD.
