  • Warning has now been cancelled.

    POST: 12:40 p.m. update: The tornado warning for the District/Arlington/Alexandria is cancelled as the thunderstorm rotation has weakened. We have not seen any confirmed report of a tornado or funnel cloud.

  • Our office in Crystal City was evacuated to the parking garage. All’s well now.

  • The warning has been cancelled. It turns out that this was just the MLB postseason in DC. Sorry for the confusion.

  • Seems like somebody really screwed up on this one. It was active for about nine minutes.
