Dominion logo(Updated at 2:30 p.m.) A pair of power outages hit parts of north Arlington earlier today.

At about 9:15 a.m., a tree fell on power lines along Lorcom Lane, in the area of N. Jackson Street, causing several transformers to blow. That knocked out power to 3,827 customers, according to Dominion. Power was restored by noon, the company said.

Shortly after that outage was reported, another began.

“Around the same time we had another outage involving a tree on a power line in nearby northern Arlington,” Dominion spokeswoman Daisy Pridgen told ARLnow.com. “It affected 2,455 customers. Power was restored in two hours and 25 minutes.”

Traffic lights were reported dark on busy Lee Highway near I-66 as a result of the outages.
