BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Severe thunderstorms left behind a path of destruction Monday afternoon in the Baltimore region.

The storm brought down trees, poles, even power lines all across the state from Montgomery County to Baltimore City.

Damages appears to have been most severe in parts of Baltimore and Carroll Counties.

Dozens of trees crushed cars and homes, like one that covered Kenilworth Drive.

“It’s amazing. The good thing is it didn’t hit anybody,” said Paul Dodd, who was at the scene.

In Towson on Chestnut Avenue, the power of the fast moving storm brought down massive trees and power lines. At one point, BGE said 28,000 customers were in the dark.

“You hit Bosley and Joppa and there are trees everywhere. Our backyard–branches that big are down,” Bob Tarring said.

Traffic on southbound Charles was a no go, and some people came home to find branches that enveloped their home.

One family bought a home 11 months ago, but now it’s condemned after being damaged in Monday’s storms.

One woman just paid thousands to remove a dead tree, only to have a healthy one fall on a garage with her BMW inside.

“That’s why I’m probably smiling…because no one wears out, it was safe, it could have went the other way,” Towson resident Terri Morris said.

Some people still have no power. Baltimore County Councilman David Marks said he’s contacting the local YMCA to see if people will be able to shower there.
