Derecho's Impact on Kingstowne
Most of Kingstowne has power, but a few residents are still waiting.
After Friday night's derecho storm, most of Northern Virginia got hit with power outages and structural damage. While most of the Kingstowne area was minimally affected, some areas were still without power on Monday.
Early Monday morning, a Patch reader said that part of the Hayfield Farm community was still without power. Due to the outages and other storm damage, Hayfield Farm Swim Club was closed on Monday. According to a statement on their website, the pool will need an additional eight hours after the power is restored for the pump to run before it can re-open.
Carl Sell, president of the Rose Hill Civic Association, said that Cottonwood Drive between Rose Hill Drive and Split Rock Road are also still without power.
Scott McEwan, general manager of Comfort Inn & Suites on S. Van Dorn Street, said the hotel was at full capacity on Saturday and Sunday. Occupancy rates were projected to be 60 percent for this past weekend. McEwan estimates that 50 to 60 hotel guests were staying there due to power outages.
