A strong cold front is approaching an extremely hot, humid unstable air mass over central and eastern Virginia and North Carolina, prompting the Weather Service to post a rare Particularly Dangerous Situation Alert.

Very strong straight line winds are knocking down trees and power lines right now as the intense storms come down the slope of the Appalachians. There are dozens of recent damage reports already. The storms are likely to intensify as they hit the superheated air over the coastal plain. This is an extremely dangerous situation.

SPC put the eastern NC and VA area in a "moderate" warning with 45% or greater chance of damaging 60mph or greater winds.

There are well over 100 wind reports already today.
NOAA had over 400 storm reports at 6:55 EDT

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
