Alert DC warned:

“NWS has issued a high wind warning which is in effect until noon Sunday. Winds West 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 55 mph. A high wind warning means a damaging wind event is expected. Sustained winds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph or more will cause tree and property damage. Anticipate power outages. If you live near large trees, remain in a lower level of your home or seek shelter elsewhere if possible.”
