Strong thunderstorms brought down some large trees and wires in the Northwood Park neighborhood of Silver Spring on Monday afternoon, according to a Montgomery County fire official.

Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson Pete Piringer said an intense round of storms brought down trees and wires onto homes in the Dennis Avenue and Royalton Road area. According to Piringer, a number of homes were struck by falling tree and wires are down throughout the neighborhood.

“We are currently assessing the situation,” Piringer said, noting that several people will be displaced. At least one home is uninhabitable, Piringer said.

He said one person was injured and there are a number of roads closed in the Silver Spring because there are still some wires down.
