Severe Wind Storm Darkens Capitol

Luke 21:7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will all this happen? What sign will show us that these things are about to take place?” Luke 21:11 "There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and epidemics in many lands, and there will be terrifying things (that which strikes terror), and great miraculous signs in the heavens."

A surprise windstorm that hit Washington, D.C. knocked out power to the U.S. Capitol building and other landmarks.

Winds were gusting over 50 miles per hour as the temperature fell over 45 degrees during the day according to the National Weather Service.  The blast of colder air blacked out power to the Capitol Dome for half an hour in what officials called “a very rare event.”

Residents of West End reported their lights flickering and going out for the first time in years.

Utility companies say at the maximum outage, over 60,000 customers were without power across the region.
