Happy Birthday United States!
Americans from across the country were gathering under heavy security Monday at the National Mall for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display, part of a holiday celebration that also included a parade and other events across the city.
Metro says it is providing extra rail service on July Fourth for people attending celebrations on the National Mall and a Washington Nationals game.
A quick look at the radar this morning tells you all you need to know… expect a good deal of shower activity today with scattered thunderstorms and little in the way of sustained sunshine.
Leave the fireworks to the professionals. That’s the message from the Maryland fire marshal as we get ready to celebrate our country’s birthday.
Maryland State Police say extra troopers will on duty over the July 4th weekend to help keep traffic moving smoothly and safely on the state’s highways.
