A Day of Falling Trees in Great Falls

A Day of Falling Trees in Great Falls

This giant tree fell away from the road and toward Jim and Joan Brady’s house in Great Falls, landing on the vegetable garden area and not the house. As a result of the significant wind event Northern Virginia experienced Friday, March 2, more than 200,000 residents lost power, trees have fallen, and traffic signals were broken throughout the area.

Neighbors Pitch In
