With the tornado warnings and severe weather in the area people all over NoVA were on alert yesterday, as well as into today. What is your severe weather plan? Do you have one? Share with us on twitter or below in our commenting section.

We asked some @wusa9 twitter followers and here are some of the responses we got:

The Show (Alexandria Restaurant Week) Must Go On!

The Show (Alexandria Restaurant Week) Must Go On!

I ventured into Old Town Alexandria today to see how the restaurants were impacted by yesterday's "thunder-snow" storm. After speaking with a handful of restaurants, the consensus was that restaurant week will continue as planned, and none of the restaurants will be adding any extra days. Did you have a reservation last night that you missed because of the storm? We want to hear from you. Email us at neighborhoods@wusa9.com. 

Check out the video to hear from Steve Mendoza of Pizza Paradiso and Bryan Penn of RedRocks Pizza Napoletana to hear how their pizza joints were affected by the storm last night and during today's lunch crowd. And find out what menu items you don't want to miss!
