Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning (“Derecho” Edition)


Here are a few Virginia news headlines, political, meterological and otherwise, for Sunday, July 1. As of 6 am, Dominion reports that there are still 291,189 people in Northern Virginia without electricity, plus 75,753 in the Shenandoah Valley/Western Piedmont, and 76,758 in the Richmond Metro/Tri Cities area. And just remember, this insane weather across the country (and the globe, actually), season after season, year after year, has NOTHING whatsoever to do with anthropogenic global warming. So sayeth Rush, the Koch brothers, Rex Tillerson, and all the other profit-over-planet traitors to humanity.
