On Friday afternoon, everyone was bracing for the forecasted heat wave, but no one anticipated the hurricane-like thunderstorm that hit late that night. Most households in Baltimore were out of power for over 24 hours on the hottest weekend of the year, leaving residents to find a way to maintain their cool (literally and figuratively). As of this morning, may outages persist.
Here are some pictures from around Cedarcroft/Roland Park/Woodbrook. Please send us your pics at [email protected] and we’ll post them, and please share your survivor tales in the comments.
Watch this space for more photos as we make our way around town…
