Lenny Weatherstein is happy the damage to his Harford County home isn't worse after Thursday's storm.

"It's just truly unbelievable, I can't believe that this would happen to anybody and especially, you would never think it would happen to you," said Weatherstein.

From D.C.to Harford and Cecil counties -- it was a mess throughout the region.

Weatherstein's trailer, which he shares with his family has thick tree branches protruding from the backside after the severe weather.  His sister broke the news to him.

"She went in the in bedroom and there was a tree through the house so she messaged me at work," he said.

About 15 minutes away in Cecil County, trees could be seen blocking roads throughout the area. Police kept people off the roads for hours while they cleared the damage. 

In Baltimore, a Mount Washington apartment roof took a beating, forcing residents out at least for a little while as crews worked.

"This is unfortunate and I know have to find a place to live for the next day I have to find a place tomorrow to live," resident Kai Ding said.

Officials advise the public to stay away from any debris, live wires or hazards and report them immediately.
