now. this is northbound route 1 between lockheed boulevard and beacon hill road where we have power lines that are down blocking parts of route 1. sky 9 is over the scene to show us the delays as well as the trouble spots. this is northbound route 1 here. police obviously on the scene. these detours are obviously in place as well. traffic right now being diverted east but this is certainly causing a delay for folks that are going to be approaching this area. again the best advice we can give you is to add additional time to your morning commute to get to your destination on time. the detours are in place. you will be able to continue on with the rest of your route. add 10 to 20 minutes to the morning commute so you can get to school and/or work on time this morning. giving you a look at trafficland. this is south capitol street at suitland road coming from suitland into town. you won't have any troubles. traffic fill fairly light. we'll tell you about a delay on metro that could impact the morning commute. over to you. this morning leadership here at prince george's county police headquarters standing

bypass the headache all together. the traffic is being diverted east but the detours are in place. if you're going to be heading out in that area, we suggest you add additional time to your morning commute because this will slow you down as you prepare this situation. coming up after the break, we'll talk about other situations going on around the metro. blue, how the delay on metro on the red line could impact the morning commute.

result of some power lines that went down as well as wires. here's a live look right now to show you how things are shaping up there. you can see the delays from sky 9. so we're asking commuters to add additional time to your morning commute to account for the delays. detours are in place. this will certainly slow you down. we'll have an alternate route after the break. over to you. the holiday gifts you order online may come a little earlier than expected this year. >> talking about gifts, how about free coffee. we'll tell you where, when and how you can cash in on the fresh brew. ♪
