Thursday afternoon the Summer storm of storms hit the Fairlington/Shirlington neighborhoods. We walked around after and took a few photos of the damage. Really shocking was the damage on the Abingdon Elementary School grounds. The playgrounds incredibly survived and the building seemed to be unharmed as well. Unfortunately, those living next to the school the power is still out of service. Latest reports have been that they will have to hold on until Sunday.
ARLnow has done great reporting of the aftermath. Have a look for info on where to go if power is out and other facts.
