Potomac Yard Harris Teeter Closed After Flooding


Update on 5/14/12 — This article has been updated here.

The Harris Teeter supermarket at 3600 S. Glebe Road near Potomac Yard has been flooded, possibly by sewage.

Authorities responded to the store for a report of flooding earlier today. A tipster described the incident as “a catastrophic sewage line failure that reportedly destroyed major sections of the store.”

“Ten trucks from Purofirst restoration are joined on scene by three tractor-trailer sized trucks presently pumping,” the tipster said. “One person on [scene] said the store could be closed for months for repairs and restoration.”

The store is on the bottom floor of the Eclipse condominium building, in the far southeastern corner of Arlington.
