Severe storms cause power outages

Posted: Updated:
Severe storms have caused some residents in Rockville, Maryland to lose power on Tuesday evening.

Approximately 1,000 homes in Montgomery County are in the dark. In addition, heavy winds, rain, and lightning have caused trees to fall in that area. Some residents compared the storm to a tornado.

“It sounded like a freight train.  A storm moving fast with no way of stopping it,” said Rockville resident, Bob Haynes.

Crew members are working to repair and restore services. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
