Severe storms cause power outages, damage across D.C. metro area

Weather DC WJLA 7 - The Associated Press, ABC 7 News - Wed, 01 Jul 2015 06:23:54 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA/AP) - Many people across the D.C. metro area are waking up without power this morning after strong storms pushed through the region around midnight.

Severe storms brought down trees and power lines throughout the mid-Atlantic region, affecting some roads and rail service.

Transportation agencies around the region reported some roads closed Wednesday morning by downed trees and wires and flooding. Amtrak is warning that service between Washington and Philadelphia is delayed. Maryland's MARC and Virginia's VRE commuter rail services are reporting delays too.

A Girl Scout campout on the White House South Lawn was moved indoors as the storm moved in.

According to Stormwatch 7 meteorologist Eileen Whelan, the highest wind gust recorded via WeatherBug network was 74 mph in Seat Pleasant, Maryland.

Power companies are reporting outages, including a peak of 28,000 customers without power in Maryland. That number fell to about 13,000 by daybreak, with more than half in Prince George's County. In Washington, about 4,000 customers are in the dark. Nearly 7,000 customers are without power in northern Virginia.

The lightning, rain and wind caused a variety of storm-related issues, including a gravel slide in Alexandria that blocked the Eisenhower Avenue Connector between I-495 and Clermont Avenue and left more than 19,000 customers without power early Wednesday morning.

As of 8:16 a.m. Wednesday., the power outage numbers for the D.C. metro area are:

BGE 2,645 Pepco 11,586 Dominion (Northern Virginia) 5,012 SMECO 181 NOVEC 1 Potomac Edison (Md. only) 67 Rappahannock 16

If your power goes out, you can report the outage to your power company by calling these numbers:

BGE 1-877-778-2222 Pepco 1-877-737-2662 Dominion 1-866-DOM-HELP SMECO 1-877-747-6326 NOVEC 1-888-335-0500 Potomac Edison

A deaf man who spent 6 weeks in jail is out, after man recants

Virginia WJLA - The Associated Press - Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:42:42 EST

McLEAN, Va. (AP) - A man whose claim about a stolen iPad left a deaf man jailed for six weeks has now recanted his accusation.

Abreham Zemedagegehu, who is homeless, spent six weeks at the Arlington jail last year on charges that he stole the iPad.

Last week, though, the man who accused Zemadagegehu formally recanted that accusation. Robert L. Mason, who is also deaf and homeless, admitted he was mistaken as part of a legal settlement.

Zemedagegehu also has filed a lawsuit against the Arlington County sheriff, alleging that the jail failed to provide a sign-language interpreter so that he could understand what was happening to him during his incarceration. Zemedagegehu, a native of Ethiopia, can't communicate effectively in written English.

The Mall at Pentagon City: Virginia's next great entertainment attraction?

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News - Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:45:25 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) -- The Pentagon City Shopping Mall, Fashion Centre is currently undergoing renovations to become a destination rather than just a place to shop. Director of Mall Marketing and Business Development Todd Jerscheid and General Manager Laurie Van Dalen shared details of the construction process, which is expected to be completed by May 2016.

&ldquo:They aren&rsquo:t coming to the mall to shop anymore&mdash:they&rsquo:re coming to be entertained. So it&rsquo:s that total experience,&rdquo: Van Dalen explained.

Part of the process of creating a greater experience meant becoming a place people will not only want to come to, but somewhere they will stay longer when they do come. Focused efforts have been put into adding more areas for shoppers to sit and relax, such as restaurants and wi-fi accessible soft seating areas throughout the atrium.

In order to meet and exceed the modern demands of the 18 million annual guests, Simon, the retail real estate company heading the project, set construction into three phases: bathrooms, interior, and a 50,000 square foot expansion. Shoppers inside the mall are treated to new elevators and escalators, floor tiles, energy efficient LED lighting, and chrome hand rails courtesy of Dallas based architecture firm Omniplant. To change up the merchandising mix, retailers such as Toureneau and Vince Camuto have been added to the mall&rsquo:s directory.

The mall has remained fully functional throughout the renovation process and Jerscheid and Van Dalen are excited for customers see the final product.

Dogs headed for Korean meat farm adopted or fostered

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News - Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:15:06 EST

WASHINGTON (WJLA) -- Dogs headed for a meat farm in Seoul, South Korea have taken a sharp detour, for the better.

In January, the Humane Society International teamed up with northern Virginia animal shelters to stop the impending fate of the 23 dogs heading to Seoul to be sold as meat.

Five months later, the dogs are safely state-side, living in their forever homes or are participating in a foster program, waiting to be adopted.

After being quarantined for a short period, the dogs were finally released, and sent to six local shelters, including Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, Fairfax County Animal Shelter, Loudoun County Animal Service, City of Manassas Animal Control and Adoption Center, and the Washington Animal Rescue League.

Professional photographer Shelley Castle photographed a handful of these dogs.

To learn more or to schedule a meeting with one of the dogs, visit www.awla.org.

GMW Recipe: Harlequin Truffle Brownies from 'Extreme Brownies'

Virginia WJLA - ABC 7 News - Tue, 23 Jun 2015 13:38:57 EST

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) - Do you love brownies? Pastry Chef Connie Weis stopped by Good Morning Washington on Tuesday to demonstrate how to make ":extreme brownies":.

Check out the recipe for Harlequin truffle brownies below to make your own at home.

Harlequin Truffle Brownies Makes twelve large (2¾: by 2¾:-inch) squares

The original French ":truffle": was simply a roughly rolled hunk of chocolate ganache dusted in cocoa powder to emulate the coveted Black Pé:rigord truffle mushroom. Today, almost every chocolatier gloms onto the name truffle to describe any chocolate candy in his or her collection. Consequently, I feel quite free to use the word in the title of this brownie, which is decadently dark and topped with a layer of chocolate ganache dusted with cocoa powder. The harlequin pattern on the cocoa powder is quite easy to make with a thin, sharp knife, and elevates this brownie to one I hope a French bistro would be proud to serve.

Brownie Batter Vegetable shortening for pan 3 sticks (12 ounces) unsalted butter 2 cups (12 ounces) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips 6 large eggs, room temperature 3 cups (1 pound 5 ounces) sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract 1¼: cups (5 ounces) cake flour 1 cup and 2 tablespoons (4.2 ounces) Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder

Special Dark Chocolate Ganache ¾: cup (6 ounces) heavy whipping cream 1¼: cups (7.5 ounces) Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips ½: teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Garnish 2-3 tablespoons Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder

1. To make the brownies, adjust an oven rack to the middle level of the oven and preheat to 350°:F. Prepare a 9 by 13-inch baking pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Lightly grease the foil in the pan.

2. Cut the butter sticks into 1-inch slices. In a small, heavy saucepan, melt the butter pieces over the lowest setting: add the bittersweet chocolate chips. Stir with a small whisk until combined and the chocolate is melted and smooth. Turn off the heat but leave the saucepan on the burner while proceeding with the recipe.

3. Using a large whisk, lightly beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Place the sugar and salt in a separate small mixing bowl, then whisk into the eggs just until incorporated. Briefly whisk the melted chocolate mixture, then gradually whisk into the egg mixture until just combined. Briefly whisk in the vanilla. You can set aside the saucepan and small whisk - no need to wash them - to use for the chocolate ganache.

4. Place the flour and cocoa powder in the small mixing bowl: whisk together to combine. Sift through a medium strainer directly onto the batter: stir in with a silicone spatula until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly with a small offset spatula. Bake for 34 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and let cool at room temperature while preparing the ganache.

5. To make the ganache, bring the cream just to a boil in the reserved small saucepan. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate chips: shake the pan to cover the chips with the hot cream. Cover the pan tightly and let sit for 2 minutes, then gently blend together with a small whisk until the chocolate is incorporated and smooth. Add the vanilla and whisk briefly. Pour the ganache over the warm slab and spread evenly with a small offset spatula. Let sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes, then refrigerate the pan for 7 to 8 hours, or overnight.

6. To remove the brownie slab from the pan, run a thin knife between the foil and the sides of the pan, then turn the pan over and push on the center back of the pan, catching the edge of the slab with your hand. Peel off and discard the foil and place the slab on a cutting board. Use a long chef&lsquo:s knife to cut into squares, cleaning the knife in hot water and drying before each cut to provide sharp clean edges.

7. Place four cut brownies close together in a square shape on a sheet of parchment paper. This placement will ensure that most of the cocoa powder spreads onto the brownies, not the parchment. Using a medium strainer, sift the cocoa powder to evenly cover the top of each brownie. Working with one brownie at a time, pick it up and tap it sideways on the parchment paper to knock off the excess cocoa powder: you just want a fine coating. Use a thin chef's (or paring) knife to lightly score diagonal lines about ¼: inch apart in one direction, and then repeat in the opposite direction, forming a diamond harlequin pattern. Repeat with the remaining brownies. Excess cocoa powder left on the parchment paper should be returned to the cocoa container for another use.

STORAGE: Store in the refrigerator in a single layer in an airtight container for up to 14 days. Bring to room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
