"I saw the lightning hit the telephone pole by my house," Philip Hebb of Englewood Road said Friday night. "There is a big tree that blew down, and it's laying on my shed. " The slow-moving system of severe thunderstorms that ravaged the Midwest and parts of the South continued moving through the Tri-State area Friday, bringing damaging winds and the threat of hail, said Kevin Witt, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va.
