Storm of July 2012

Power Truck repairing stoplight in Montgomery County MD

Detour from Tree in Road

The road has been blocked in Oakton for about a week now and workers are just now starting to look at it.

Tangled Power Lines

A power line didn't fall into the road but the wires were ripped away. The wires are now scattered across the road in Oakton VA.

Caught Power Line

This tree smacked down the power lines during the storm. It has held them down for about 5 days now with no end in sight.

Limbs Down Derecho

These limbs scraped the side of this house all the way down. They were so lucky it didn't take off the whole side of the house.

Blown Away

This fence was blown down and across the street in between Herndon and Oakton.

Post and tree fell

A pine tree and a post fell right in front of my neighbor's house. We lost power for about a week and still have no internet and tv. The post and tree cut down the cables.

How my neighbors cooked while having no electrical power!
