A Confirmed 'Microburst' Struck Md. Neighborhood

BLADENSBURG, Md. - As many as 80 residents in Prince George's County, whose homes were damaged in Friday night's storm, have been forced into shelter at Bladensburg High School.

"Some are there because of loss of power, and are just waiting for restoration of power. Others will be more long term," says Ronnie Gill, director of Emergency Management for Prince George's County.

Gill says the aftermath of Friday's storms, which slammed into Bladensburg and Cheverly Friday night, resembles a war zone.
