Storm takes out trees, power

April 17, 2010

A storm that blew through the Tri-State region Friday afternoon knocked down some trees and power lines in Washington County, a 911 dispatcher said.

Jefferson County, W.Va., also had scattered trees and wires down, a dispatcher there said.

Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer's Web site reported that .15 inches of rain fell and the top wind speed was 53 mph, at 3:55 p.m.

The National Weather Service issued a statement Friday night that strong thunderstorms, with wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph, were on their way to the region.

The National Weather Service predicted a mostly cloudy day in Hagerstown Saturday, with a high near 59 degrees.

The following six days, starting Sunday, looked to be partly or mostly sunny, with highs in the 50s and 60s, the National Weather Service predicted.
