BALTIMORE — Strong storms swept though Central Maryland Thursday leaving behind a lot of damage.

BGE says as of 11 p.m. Thursday night, nearly 52,000 people were without power. Most outages were found in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel and Baltimore Counties.

Mayor Brandon Scott said Thursday night that two to four inches of rain fell in Northeast Baltimore, with over 20,000 customers impacted across the City.

The storms caused at least 65 trees to fall in Baltimore, dozens of which left roadways blocked. Many cars also found themselves submerged in water, according to Scott.

BGE says more than 800 mutual assistance personnel will help restore power as quickly as possible.
