Sunday Evening Storms Leave Significant Damage

Severe thunderstorms in Montgomery County Sunday evening took down several trees along with power lines throughout the county. The thunderstorms followed an intense heatwave causing temperatures to rise into the high 90’s over the weekend.

The heavy rain and high gusts of wind caused trees to crash into homes and roadways, leaving many residents without power throughout the region.

Pete Piringer, spokesman for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services, tweeted out pictures of damage from the aftermath of the storm.
