Severe Heat, Dangerous Lighting and 80 plus MPH Winds
- stein0726, CNN iReport producer
We learned that the storm made national news with the winds going up to 80 plus MPH. Maryland, Virginia and DC were all affected. Our county alone had 61,745 families without electricity, air conditioning and for those of us on a well pump, no running water. There are still many with out power. Two deaths have been associated with the storm.
Going out to the store this afternoon we found the culprit of our outage, a huge tree snapped in half and splintered as well as the power pole itself. Although we have our power the old lines are still on the ground.
