Storm System Moves Through Maryland
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A vicious storm moving across the country triggers a line of tornadoes along the border of Oklahoma and Kansas.
Andrea Fujii reports another round of damaging weather is moving through Maryland.
BGE is still recovering from what they’re calling the worst storm of the year and now, another round is here.
It comes just as an army of 1,300 utility workers restored power to almost 94,000 BGE customers. They lost electricity in Friday’s wild winds, which came within a few miles an hour of hurricane strength.
“This storm did significant damage to our electric distribution system. We had large trees come down on a lot of our equipment,” said BGE spokesperson Linda Foy.
Now, with repairs finished, the utility is gearing up for another possible severe storm Monday. The massive storm system moving across the country includes just about every kind of weather. In Maryland, strong winds and thunderstorms are possible. Parts of Maryland are under a thunderstorm watch until 4 p.m.
Arizona saw an extremely rare snowfall stretching from Sedona to the mountains around Phoenix.
Near Toledo, crews are concerned about heavy rain and are filling thousands of sandbags.
“We’re flood prone. That’s just the bottom line,” said one person.
BGE says they’re watching the next storm closely, hoping it’s not a repeat of the one from last Friday.
