Roads quiet after storm

After a night of thunderstorms and hail, drivers are hitting the road again and heading to work. Here's a look at some of the headaches on the roads:

8:40 A.M. UPDATE:

Another reminder that the roads are still quiet.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:

The roads are still quiet. Are people staying home and planning on taking off early for the holiday weekend? Or are people just trying to avoid this morning's follow-up rainstorms? In any event, it's pretty quiet out there.

7:45 A.M. UPDATE:

The accident on I-395 North has been cleared.

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:

An accident on I-395 North shortly after the Springfield Interchange is blocking the right shoulder. Possible delays could slow traffic in and around the Interchange.

7 A.M. UPDATE:

Still quiet on the roads around the region. Seeing or hearing anything different? Sound off in the comments below.

6:35 A.M. UPDATE:

The sky is gray and foreboding, but the roads seem fairly quiet right now. Not trying to jinx you commuters or anything, but at this moment that's how it appears.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- The lanes on I-66 West have reopened.

-- The shoulder on I-495/Inner Loop after Connecticut Avenue has also reopened.

-- And the I-95 South lanes have reopened.

ORIGINAL POST:

-- An accident on I-66 West at the Fairfax County Parkway is blocking the left lane, left center lane and left shoulder.

-- There's also an accident on I-495/Inner Loop after Connecticut Avenue, which is blocking one of the shoulders.

-- And an accident on I-95 South at Sandy Spring Road/MD 198 is blocking one southbound lane and one southbound shoulder.
