Tuesday Night Storms Leave Damage Throughout the County

Severe thunderstorms caused flooded roadways, downed wires and significant damage throughout parts of the county on Tuesday evening.

Stoney Creek Road off River Road in Potomac overflowed causing potential damage to the bridge and road surface, officials say.

A tree also fell onto an unoccupied house on the 3200 block of Leland Street in Chevy Chase on Tuesday night. Although there were no injuries, officials say the fallen tree caused downed wires throughout the Chevy Chase neighborhood. About 60 homes were left without power until it was later restored. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service advises residents not to attempt to move branches for fear of electric shock.

On Wednesday, officials say there’s potential for severe storms again in the afternoon across much of the Eastern US, including Montgomery County.
