Down Trees, 1,300 Customers Without Power From Thursday Storms

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The Thursday afternoon storms pushed through Salisbury packing heavy rain and winds gusting at 56 mph.

The storm system left the city almost as soon as it came in, taking out more than just street lights in the city. Among the lights reported out included Centre Road and North Salisbury Boulevard, right outside the Centre at Salisbury. Winds uprooted trees near homes, left streets flooded and hundreds of residents without power.

According to Choptank Electric, right after the storm, 1,285 customers went without electricity. Those numbers included 650 residents in Dorchester County, 44 in Somerset County, 549 in Wicomico County and 42 in Worcester County.

In Crisfield, a second system pushed through, but did not dump nearly as much rain as up north. Several streets were flooded including portions of the pier that is still being repaired from October's Superstorm Sandy.
