Will the heat warp the roads?

Mark Berman

We posted this yesterday, but considering there's a heat advisory in effect, it's worth revisiting: Blistering temperatures mean that roads in the area might buckle, according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

If you spot issues on the road, here are some ways to report them:

VIRGINIA (except for Arlington County and Alexandria):
-- Drivers can report problem patches of pavement by calling 703-383-8368 or completing an online request form.

-- Call 703-228-3000.

-- Fill out an online form here.

-- For Maryland state roads, you can complete a form here.
-- The county road departments in Maryland are here.

-- In the District, you can call 311 or send a tweet to @DDOTDC.
