BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Heavy rains and winds pummel the region creating some serious problems for many caught in the storms Thursday.
It was day of wild weather without question. From trees being completely uprooted to roofs torn right off buildings.
All across Maryland the storm damage was substantial. The end result of a day of nearly nonstop rain and high winds that bashed the region.
“The wind when it went down the backside of these apartments sounded like a freight train,” Cozette Davis said.
A section of the roof from Brook View Apartments in Mount Washington was torn right off.
Officials say roughly 12 families were displaced as a result of the damage, thankfully most of them were not home when the incident went down.
One couple say their unit will likely be condemned.
“You gotta move, you gotta find some place to live,” John Rivers said.
A similar story happened at the Washington View Apartments in D.C. Flying debris did major damage to nearby cars.
“That wind came out of nowhere,” one woman said.
In Bowie, strong winds uprooted a large tree right onto the garage of a home off Victoria Heights Drive.
Several drivers were stranded in flood waters, like in Linthicum and Laurel.
Some roads were still majorly flooded like Glencoe Road along Big Gunpowder Falls Crossing, one driver got stuck.
Amazingly, so far there have been no reported injuries at any of the damage sites.
The Red Cross is helping displaced families at the Brook View Apartments get back on their feet. The management office say they too will be assisting those families.
