Reston's Derecho Storm Came with 79mph Winds

Many trees had limbs twisted and snapped off, these between Block III & II were uprooted. 
The damaged Goodman swing by the Lake Anne Elementary path.
Update: Blocks I & II power returned Tuesday night.  At last!

Hickory Cluster sustained 79mph winds during the June 29th Derecho storm. Block I and II without power from 11pm Friday night (still out as of Tuesday afternoon.)  A few homes sustained damage but thankfully no reports of anyone getting hurt!

Resources and closings notice from Supervisor Hudgins.

Thanks to board members Greg Gallardo and Michael Poss for their quick action in contacting Blade Runners on Saturday morning.  Cluster thanks also to Michael Poss for going around the cluster with Blade Runners to identify problem areas.

Blade Runners started working removing trees, branches and large debris beginning on July 1st.  They'll be back to clean up the smaller leaves and twigs on their regularly scheduled mowing date.

Please call TWC with reports or concerns about cluster trees still in need of attention.
(Urgent? Press 4 and leave a call back number.)
