As of 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, the Dominion outage map indicates more than 4,000 McLean customers are without power after Sandy blew through town.
The outages are not concentrated in a specific area and are not as widespread as some other communities in Northern Virginia. Visit the interactive outage map on Dominion's website.
McLean residents have been extremely helpful in reporting outages. Here is a list of what we know about so far:
- A large tree fell and brought down with power lines on Lewinsville Road, leaving almost all of the homes on Lewinsville dark.
- The Langley Oaks subdivision next to Langley High School and Langley High School lost power at 9 p.m. Monday. This impacts about 275 houses and Langley High School.

- On Facebook, a reader reported, "Dominion Virginia Power confirmed widespread outages when I called at 2:30 p.m. (Monday) to report ours near Swinks Mill and Georetown Pike intersection just outside Beltway."
- The Dominion outage map indicates some businesses in downtown McLean have been affected near the intersection of Chain Bridge Road and Old Dominion Drive.

You can report your power outage to Dominion by calling 866-366-4357. Dominion is not estimating restoration times yet because crews are only working as weather conditions allow.
On Twitter, Dominion asked drivers to use safety. "Treat intersections without lights as 4-way stops & pls move over and give utility workers some extra space if doing roadside work," @DomVAPower tweeted at about 7 a.m. Tuesday.
