Md. Cleans Up After Low-End Derecho & Possible Tornado Barrels Through

Originally posted on CBS Baltimore:

JESSUP, Md. (WJZ) — The storms are gone, but they left behind a big mess. The high winds and walls of water packed an especially hard punch in certain areas of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties.

Gigi Barnett has the latest from Jessup.

The big question for neighbors now is, how much is all this damage going to cost?

The dark clouds, strong winds and pouring rain that rolled over parts of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s County left behind a mess of downed trees in its wake.

“I was just watching outside. It was amazing,” said Phil Slye.

And the cleanup is just beginning.

“Just a great big limb came off that tree back there. Probably about 25 foot long and probably about eight inches round. It broke it like a twig,” Slye said.

About Jonathan Caswell

Long-time writer and poet...mostly for my and my friends' entertainment. Married, one wife, no kids, residing in Douglas, MA, for nearly 24 years. Many interests...God, my wife, trains, life...writing on anything and nearly everything at least once. I prefer the "limerick" "form" for its discipline of meter, rhyme and concise handling of its idea(s), I also use haiku, rhyming couplets, four-liners and an occasional free-form verse. I have interests in folk, work and protest songs, the blues, advertising jingles and the occasional nursery rhyme tune, plus the older Christian hymns...to write parody, or alternative, lyrics! I see no contradiction in writing what some would call religious poetry AND secular, "everyday" poetry. My Christ works in this world too, not just and only in church.
