Having just been in that area yesterday, I think I can explain a

To many people Tysons Corner == Tysons Corner Mall, I and II (yes,
two different malls across the street from each other).  I is a
fairly normal american mall, II has more "upscale" stores in it.

Anyhow, the II part has been closed twice this week, once on thursday
for a bomb scare, and today due to roof issues (unclear from the
reports on TV if there is an actual problem, or if they are just
scared of one).  As such, the mall is closed, along with a few
access roads for it.

The actual area is fine, and not in a flood plain.  That's not to
say there won't be other roof issues or clogged drains, but I don't
think there's any reason to fear it's all underwater, or anything.
