Marylanders Clean Up Damage After 3 Days Of Severe Weather
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland has been hit with round after round of severe weather over the past three days.
It’s another round of severe storms—until it becomes your severe storm.
“I was in the house at the time,” said Bruce Rayburn.
Rayburn watched as trees toppled around his Crownsville home.
“I don’t know what came down here, whether it was just high winds or a bitty twister, but as you can see, it’s all over this place,” he said.
Tuesday brought a third round of gusty winds and torrential rain in three days.
BGE says by Tuesday night, about 800 customers were in the dark due to downed power lines. Crews shut down part of Generals Highway to lift a snapped tree hanging from live wire.
This time, Herald Harbor Road in Anne Arundel County bore the brunt of the storm. Residents left to clean up the mess.
Thirty feet of what was once an 80-foot poplar tree completely snapped in half and landed in one resident’s yard. These types of images are up and down the neighborhood.
On Twitter, residents posted the golf ball-sized hail the storms brought, while one passenger too a video of low visibility on 695 caused by side-swept rains.
“I was watching it kind of escalate,” one person said.
Down in Silver Spring, a tree split a home in half and, blocks away, a trailer got tangled in low-hanging power lines, casualties of the fast-moving storms.
Maryland will get a brief respite from the storm when unseasonably cool temperatures head into our area Wednesday.
