More than 3,600 Dominion customers are without power in the Clarendon area this evening. Police are reporting that numerous traffic lights are dark on Wilson, Clarendon and Washington Boulevards, causing traffic tie-ups in the area.

It’s not clear what’s causing the power outage (Dominion says “a circuit line is down”) or when the lights might come back on. A line of storms is approaching the area from the southwest, which could compound traffic problems if the lights remain out when the rain starts.
