Passengers Evacuated From White's Ferry
About two dozen passengers were stranded this morning on White's Ferry, which crosses the Potomac River between Poolesville and Leesburg, Montgomery County fire department spokesman Pete Piringer said. The ferry apparently stalled because of a combination of high water levels in the river and debris in the water that was generated in the recent rains. Officials said they were working to be able to evacuate passengers from the ferry back to shore.
