Wind gusts never exceeded 40mph at RIC last night, and are only expected to weaken from here. The brunt of Sandy was felt much farther north and northeast of metro Richmond. Wind warnings/advisories have been dropped for Central VA, but continue for northern and western VA.
Roughly 200,000 people are without power across Virginia, but the large majority is near D.C. and along the northern edge of the Northern Neck. Safe to say Richmond was spared from any widespread damage.
