Trees starting to drop, roads flooding

Just after 2 p.m. on Monday, Prince William fire and rescue officials warned residents not to get complacent.
“Hurricane Sandy is about to get worse,” officials said in a written statement. “Think of the derecho storm with high winds in June that lasted 24 minutes. The winds we’re about to experience beginning this afternoon are like the derecho, but they will last for 24 hours.
To paraphrase: Instead of 24 minutes of dangerous winds, it will be 24 hours of dangerous conditions.”
By Monday evening, police were reporting flooding around the county but only a few roads were impassable, due to high water or downed trees.
In Dale City, a tree fell on two homes, displacing the residents but not causing any injuries.
Around 5 p.m., NOVEC reported about 2,600 customers without power, out of 150,000 in the region.
According to county spokesman Jason Grant, only 321 of those were Prince William homes, in addition to another 234 Dominion Virginia Power customers without power in Prince William.
