Irene pushes into Henrico
Hurricane Irene brought rain and steady winds of 25 to 35 mph to Henrico County late this morning, creating some driving difficulties on local roads and knocking several trees and tree limbs into power lines.
In Lakeside (above), a tree fell into a line in the vicinity of Summit Court, near Dumbarton Road, forcing police to close a section of Cedar Croft Drive.
Police also closed a portion of A.P. Hill Avenue in Highland Springs because of downed power lines, and they were investigating reports of another tree down south of the Collegiate School on River Road.
