Thousands of people in Charlottesville and Albemarle County are still without power on Monday night after a thunderstorm swept through the area. High gusts of wind, paired with rain, knocked down trees and power lines and left roads blocked with debris on Monday, May 14. The amount of rain coming down made it hard to see the road when driving, and many roads in the area were blocked by fallen trees and larger bits of debris. Two trees and a power line fell across Mountainwood Road. The trees completely blocked the roadway at the intersection of Lockesley Terrace near Sherwood Manor Apartments in Albemarle County.
