Rosslyn tree cuts power and stops traffic on Rt. 50

About 9:30am Sunday morning, a Rosslyn tree near the historically important Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums took down a major power line. That action cut off power to thousands of persons. It also caused a power line over Rt. 50 to slacken and lower. Public safety halted traffic both ways on Rt. 50.

Dominion Power responded impressively to the emergency. Power was back on within two hours. By early evening, a new pole had been installed and the line over Rt. 50 secured.
