Update at 9:05 p.m. — The number of Dominion customers without power in Arlington is now down to 350.

Dominion is reporting that just over 2,500 customers are without power in Arlington after a line of storms raced through the area just after dinner time.

There have been scattered reports of downed trees and power lines following the storms, which brought sudden high winds to Arlington around 7:45 tonight.

Most of the reported power outages are in South Arlington. Several traffic lights are reported to be dark along Columbia Pike.

    Power just came back up for me near Wakefield. Amazing how it did not even rain here.

    I have been hearing thunder but no rain in Ballston.

  • UGH…..

    no power on South Edison in Arlington. Not too far from Wakefield HS. Columbia Forest. This happens too much in this neighborhood.

    We barely got anything in my part of Westover. But my living room window faces SE and I could see a lot of lightning down that way.
