Monday night’s thunderstorms have left at least one major road flooded, trees downed and thousands of people without power around the area.
Meanwhile, trees have fallen on houses, cars and roads around the area. A tree fell on three cars on 13th Street in Northwest D.C., heavily damaging them. No one was hurt.
Prince George’s County Fire and EMS spokesman Mark Brady says that houses have been damaged by trees on Paynes Endeavor Drive and Gallery Street, in Bowie; on Princess Garden Parkway, in Lanham; and Sugar Maple Terrace, in Upper Marlboro — “just to name a few,” he said via Twitter.
At one point, nearly 7,000 people in the area were without electricity after the storm. As of 8 a.m., Pepco was reporting about 200 residents without power, mostly in Prince George’s County, as well as a few in D.C. Dominion Power reported about 60 customers without power in Northern Virginia.
