BEWARE! We Are Under “A High Wind Warning”, The Search Continues For Missing Teen

BEWARE! We are under “A High Wind Warning”…

If you live in the Metropolitan area beware we are in for some dangerous weather. The national weather service has issued “A High Wind Warning” for the entire WHUR listening area. We could see wind gust in excess of 70 mph.

Today’s strong winds could knock down trees and power lines. In fact, North Virginia has been affected. This morning Dominion Virginia had some 9,000 customers without power. The numbers were a lot lower in Prince George’s County. To the tune of just over 2,000 customers. There could be additional reports of power outages as the day goes on.

The search continues for missing teen…

Prince George’s County Police are still searching for missing 13-year-old Otto Campbell.

The teen male was last seen on February 15th in Landover. Reports indicate he was driving a car near FedEx Field. The car is described as a 2007 blue Ford Focus with NC tag number DLM-9941. It has damage to the rear bumper.

Campbell went missing Friday morning from the 1100 block of Ivy Club Lane in Landover. Investigators say they are not sure how he obtained the car. It is also unclear where he may have been headed.

Anyone who may have seen him or have information about his whereabouts should call 301-772-4911. Click here to see an image of Campbell.

Metro’s Board prepares to vote on returning to extended hours …

Metro’s Board is preparing to hold a very important vote this week. On Thursday, leaders will cast their ballots either for or against a plan to resume to late night service.

The plan would return the transit system to running until 3 am on the weekends and Midnight on the weekdays. Something DC Mayor Muriel Bowser believes district residents and visitors need.

The Federal Transit Administration, however, is threatening to withhold $1.6 (billion) dollars in funding to the region if maintenance hours are cut for longer service hours. Metro leaders fear returning to the late-night hours will affect maintenance and service reliability.

Metro’s Board of Directors vote will begin at 10 am on Thursday, February, 28th.
