Summer-style storms drop hail
As lightning bolts crackled from the skies, intense thunderstorms swept across parts of the Washington region Saturday night, adding to the suggestion of summertime created by the day’s 90-degree high temperatures.
As it swept to the southeast, toward Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay, the storm front seemed to stretch along a line from below Washington to above Baltimore.
“It looked like a tornado,” a woman in Baltimore said on Twitter. Trees toppled in some spots and hail clattered on pavements.
