Loudoun's main roads said to be clear
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office reported that major roads in the county were relatively clear by late Thursday morning, though crews were still in the process of towing stuck and abandoned vehicles from roadways. About 250 vehicles have been towed as a result of the storm, according to Vincent DiBenedetto, Loudoun sheriff's spokesman.
The Sheriff's Office also received more than 1,200 emergency calls on Wednesday. The average number of calls is generally less than 900, DiBenedetto said. There were no reports of storm-related fatalities, he said.
He added that the number of incidents and emergency calls were likely lowered by the closure of westbound Route 7 for several hours between 5:45 p.m. and 11:15 p.m. as a result of a vehicle fire and reports of stuck and abandoned cars.
