Violent evening storms following a day of triple-digit temperatures wiped out power to more than 2 million people across the eastern United States and caused two fatalities in Virginia including a 90-year-old woman asleep in bed when a tree slammed into her home, a police spokeswoman said Saturday.
Widespread power outages were reported from Indiana to New Jersey, with the bulk of the service interruptions concentrated on Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas. Earlier Friday, the nations capital reached 104 degrees topping a record of 101 set in 1934.

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
No reports of what temperatures our troops are enduring in Afghanistan, plus all the gear they are required to wear..and with no cooling areas in most places.....
No storms and two power outages in two days here in southern Michigan.
Clearly we need to close more of those filthy coal fired plants.
No doubt they are suffering. God bless and keep them. However, the thread was about the violent storm that passed thru last nite. A lot of damage and no power for a huge area. This is dangerous for the elderly such as my mother. It’s going to be 100 degrees today and more storms tonite.
Let the fun begin in Mordor-on-the-Potomac today: Orc vs. Uruk-hai over the spoils at the local 7-11.
The local 7 11 was the only thing opened and people were walking out double fisted with coffee cups.
Brings a whole new meaning to slamming down your ride!
It’s a shame a tree like that didn’t fall on the Supreme Court building. The symbolism would have been worth the cost of rebuilding the structure. I hope they can get power back to the ordinary people and families in the area soon - 100 degrees is no joke for the elderly.
WTOP is reporting power may be out for a week for some of us.
Coincidental with having a marxist in the White House, it seems.

The massive storm, called a derecho, developed near Chicago and proceeded to DC, leaving destruction in it’s wake. Sound familiar?
Get used to storms, fires, hurricane force winds, floods. God is starting to lay the hammer down on this country for turning its back on him, and also electing a muzzie who hates Israel. It’s only going to get worse.
I couldn’t agree more, that was the first thing I thought of also.
