BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Severe storms rolled through parts of Maryland Monday afternoon, leaving downed power lines and power outages behind.

As of 11:15 p.m. Monday, just over 6,300 BGE customers were without power, primarily in Baltimore, Carroll and Harford counties.

At one point, just under 18,000 customers were in the dark.

In Frederick County, Interstate 270 was temporarily blocked due to downed live power lines.

Multiple reports of downed trees have also come in across the region. A fallen tree also killed an 89-year-old man in Finksburg who was in his driveway as a storm passed by.

Also in Finksburg, a deputy had to detour traffic around a tree on Deer Park Road. Power lines and a transformer were also tangled on the ground.

The National Weather Service has not said whether the damage in Finksburg was caused by a tornado.

Massive trees also slammed into the ground across town at the Beaver Creek Estates, crushing a car.

In Baltimore, WJZ caught up with Terri Kenney, who had a tree fall on his roof.

“I mean it was short, but it was wicked,” Kenney said. “Every tree on this street was bending.”
