The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch until 8 p.m. in Alexandria and the surrounding area.

Wind gusts could reach 60 miles per hour, and NWS is warning that the storm could cause trees and large branches to fall.

“This could injure those outdoors, as well as damage homes and vehicles,” NWS said in the alert. “Roadways may become blocked by downed trees. Localized power outages are possible. Unsecured light objects may become projectiles.”

NWS advises residents to move into an interior room on the lowest floor of a building, and to not drive.

“Torrential rainfall is occurring with these storms, and may lead to flash flooding,” NWS said. “Do not drive your vehicle through flooded roadways.”
