Wednesday afternoon’s severe storms left snarled traffic on the JFX and reports of damage around the Baltimore area. In Towson, the storm left its frightening mark inside a home.
According to WBAL-TV, a tree fell and crashed right through a house on Montrose Avenue around 3:30 p.m. The owner told the station that it came down “like a knife.” He was working on his computer about five yards from where the tree fell. His whole bedroom was destroyed, and the tree was on top of his bed.
“If it had been a little different angle, it would’ve got me,” Guy McKhann said.
On Thursday, a crane was at the house removing pieces of the tree.

In Woodbine, the winds brought havoc to a horse rescue farm. ABC2 reports that the wind blew down trees and damaged shelters.
Despite the destruction no one was hurt in either incident — including the horses.
