Arlington Police report a woman out for a walk with her young son was hit in the head by a falling tree limb at Bellevue and Morton roads shortly after 3 p.m.

The woman, 29, was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive, police say, adding her son, 3, was not injured. The tree also took down a transformer and power lines.

The incident was one of several across the area as tree limbs snapped like matchsticks in the bombogenesis-spawned winds.
