Update at 9:15 p.m. — The earlier Tornado Warning, and one issued subsequently, have both been cancelled. It appears that a rotating storm — possibly a weak tornado — passed by Tysons Corner Center mall, according to video posted on social media. There are also reports of damage near the Tysons Corner Metro station.
Note that the video below contains strong language.
Maybe some damage to some businesses on international drive between the two malls. Power lines arcing is what alerted me. Came out of nowhere. Tornado went right over Tysons corner metro station.
