Blustery Weather

Wind advisory in effect for D.C. area

     Washington got its first real taste of winter Tuesday, and many weren't ready for the whipping winds and plummeting temperatures.

     Strong wind gusts toppled trees and light poles during the day, but in the evening concerns turned to the cold weather.  Some dealt with buildings without heat, others have nowhere to get out of the cold. 

     The DC Hypothermia Center says if the bone-chilling weather sticks around, the center willl be forced to double its services.

    In northeast washington, a water main break flooded a furnace at an apartment building, leaving more than 100 residents with no heat or hot water for several days.
