Severe Weather Runs Through DC Metro Area

WASHINGTON -- With much of the D.C. region under the risk of severe weather, the National Weather Service issued tornado, severe thunderstorm and flash flood warnings Friday evening for parts of Maryland and Virginia.

It's not too often I get a chance to talk about news I've experienced first hand. Several storms have rolled through the area today ahead of a cold front, leading to a mass outbreak of severe weather today. Throughout the late afternoon/early evening hours, multiple tornado warnings were issued in the area. As of now, I am aware of two confirmed tornado's touching down, one in southeast DC, the other just to the east of where I am in Bowie, MD. The Bowie tornado actually took out power here for about 2000 BGE customers around 17:30. Power here was restored about around 18:45. The severe/tornado activity has moved on to the east of the area, with a final line running through the area right now. The primary threat at this point is flash flooding. The entire I-95 corridor is under a flash flood warning, from Washington, DC, to Baltimore, MD. I live in a high area, and with the tornado threat over, I'm in no danger at present. I had a scare earlier when the Bowie tornado took out the power here, but there hasn't been any damage to the immediate area.

The last major outbreak of tornadoes in this area occurred on 9/24/2001. The tornadoes of this day were responsible for the deaths of two University of Maryland students in College Park, and approximately $105 million (nearly $130 million in today) in damage. In this area, several buildings were stripped of siding and many trees were knocked down. Power outages in the region lasted throughout the following day while damage was being repaired.

I wasn't around for the last one. This one was really scary! The worst part was when the power went out, right when one of the tornadoes was near here!

I was a little nervous at that part, too. I think I was only so worried, because I was stuck in the bathroom when it happened. I was in such a panic I ended up forgetting to flush. Too worried I wouldn't have a toilet to flush the next day. :x_x:

Well, as funny as that sounds, I would rather not have to go through that again!

Yeah, same here. The number one way I die in nightmares is death by tornado. Been having those nightmares since I was a kid; I would rather they not come true!

If what they about dreams being omens is true, then I better be sure to be far away from you the next time a tornado comes close to here.

Oh no, if a twister is going to get me, you're going to stick with me and fight to make sure I don't end up taking a trip to that fantasy land in the sky, where the lolis run rampant, and magic is the law... on second thought, yeah, sure, you can go. :grin:

Now I'm determined to make sure I save you. I bet I could have all kinds of fun with you, if you're a cripple, or something.

Wow, I'm not sure if I should be happy you care that much, or scared you'd go that far just to have some fun at my expense. :omg:
