    I heard the storms in NoVA last night caused major damage and death. I have relatives in the area that I cannot reach. I was wondering if you knew anything about conditions in Burke, VA, especially around the high school there. (I forget the name of it). Is there a way to find out where the damage is?

    Thanks,

    Elspeth

    As I have no idea of where Burke might be, I have no help for you but... the daughter in Arlington just texted that they have their power back. When the earthquake came in up there the only communication that worked for them was facebook if you can believe it.

    She was not so fondly remembering her days on the gulf coast and the passage of several hurricanes during the day today.

    The last reports I have has only two dead - one in a house collapse and another whose car got flattened by a huge tree limb while driving home.

    Sorry I can't offer more info.


    update:
    The thunderstorms also claimed the lives of two people late Friday in Springfield, Fairfax County police said.

    A 27-year-old Burke man died when a tree fell on his car while he was driving in the area of Old Keene Mill Road and Bauer Drive just before 11 p.m. Friday, police said in a news release.

    Police said Khiet Nguyen was driving his 1998 Mercury west on Old Keene Mill Road when a tree fell on his car. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Around the same time, in the 8100 block of Carr Street, a tree fell on a house killing a 90-year-old woman as she was lying in bed, police said.

    Another resident of the house called 911, but could not reach the woman. Police are still working to reach the woman’s next of kin and have not yet released her name.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
