Power Outage Impacting Arlington Neighborhoods

7. "W&OD Trail Summer Power Lines" by Tyler Zarfoss(Updated at 7:05 p.m.) Nearly 700 Dominion customers are currently without power in Arlington.

The outages are centered around Rosslyn and parts of Columbia Pike, according to Dominion’s outage map. An “Arlington Alert” message suggested the Pike power outage is due to “equipment failure.”

The utility is hoping to have electricity restored no later than 11:00 p.m.

The current temperature at 7:00 p.m. was 92 degrees. Today (Tuesday) the high temperature at Reagan National Airport was 97 degrees, breaking the previous June 17 record high temperature of 95 degrees, set in 1991, according to the National Weather Service.
