Storms knock out power in Maryland
Thunderstorms rolled through Montgomery County and into Prince George’s Wednesday night, knocking down trees and power lines, leaving nearly 10,000 customers without power, authorities said.
No injuries were reported initially and no major streets were blocked, officials said. However, police and fire crews responded to calls for felled trees, downed electric lines and were directing traffic at darkened intersections in Bethesda, Wheaton and Silver Spring, Montgomery County police said.
About 8 p.m., as the storm headed east into Prince George’s County, Pepco reported more than 8,000 customers without power in Montgomery County and nearly a thousand in Prince George’s.
