Tornado Watch

Tornado Watch in Effect Until 9 P.M. for the City of Alexandria
The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for the entire Washington, DC metropolitan region, including the City of Alexandria until 9 p.m. today, June 1. Thunderstorms will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes. A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Residents should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and watch for later weather statements and possible warnings. The City of Alexandria is monitoring weather conditions and will respond appropriately as conditions warrant.
The current forecast is predicting storms that are very likely to bring damaging winds, high wind gusts up to 50 mph, and hail. These severe storms could cause downed trees and power lines, and localized power outages. If a power outage occurs, please report it directly to Dominion Power at 866.366.4357. Residents can also prepare for high winds by securing loose items, such as deck furniture and trash cans. For more information on preparing for a weather emergency, visit
In addition, this evening's storms may result in 1 to 1.5 inches of rain, which could lead to flash flooding. The additional rainfall could cause creeks and small streams to rise out of their banks. Residents are urged not to underestimate the power of flood water. High waters may be on the roadways and in low-lying areas. Residents are urged to use caution; do not drive or walk through high waters. For more information, visit

Alexandria Police Investigate Car Jacking

MAY 31, 2012 #12-028
Alexandria Police Investigate Carjacking

Alexandria Police are investigating a carjacking that occurred in the 5100 block of Duke Street.  Around 2:10 A.M. on Thursday, May 31, a 24 year-old City resident and a 21 year-old non-City resident were sitting in a 2004 Nissan Maxima when they were approached by three men.  One of the suspects displayed a handgun and told the victims to get out of the vehicle. The three suspects jumped into the car and drove westbound on Duke Street.  The victims of the carjacking were not injured.

A lookout was immediately broadcast to area departments and Arlington County Police Department officers located the vehicle a short time later heading northbound on Interstate 395.  Arlington County officers initiated a pursuit and eventually got the vehicle to stop on Interstate 395 at the 12th Street exit in Washington, DC.  Two suspects were apprehended inside the vehicle and a third suspect was caught after a short foot pursuit.  The weapon was recovered inside the vehicle.

Mark Comer, 23, and Marcus Crouch, 19, both of Washington, DC and a 17 year-old Maryland resident were each charged with Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle and a weapons violation in Washington, DC.  They are currently being held in that jurisdiction.

The three men have each been charged in Alexandria with Carjacking and Possession of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony.  Additional charges may be pending.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Criminal Investigations Section of the Alexandria Police Department at 703.746.6711

Article: ADHD Goes to Schoolby  Mark Bertin, M.D., Board-Certified Developmental Behavior Pediatrician
When a child has a language delay, people tend to accept this fact at face value: Joseph is 6 but speaks like a 3-year-old. While understandably upsetting to many parents, no one expects Joseph to speak differently before he is able. There's a scramble to start services and a patient approach while allowing language to develop. The same attitude does not hold for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a developmental delay in a broad skill set called executive function. A huge body of research defines it as a medical disorder; neither parents nor children benefit when people suggest otherwise. To read more:
