Storm Reports In Central Maryland From July 17

storm recap

The break of the heat wave on Saturday July 17 came with strong and severe storms. The primary issue was that some storms were very slow movers. The result was flash flooding in pockets around central Maryland, while others missed out completely.

Here is a quick look at some of the rain and damage reports, storm videos, large hail, and amazing lightning photos.

 

Rainfall 

Rainfall topped 3 inches in some of the cells on the east side of Baltimore.  

Another cluster topped 2 inches between Eldersburg and Reisterstown

 

Storm Damage Reports

Here we see the cluster of Flooding Rain, Wind Damage, and Large Hail in the same areas where the heaviest rain fell. 

 

Storm Damage: Blackjack Trucking

Look closely and you will see the hammer drop at the end. That is quite profound…

 

Thank you Jennifer Brienza Shiflett for sharing this with me. In her words:

“If you’ve been to our truck yard,  then you know the big Sycamore tree that sat dead center where we parked our trucks. It was a big old guy that had been there for decades. It was so sturdy, we had a surveillance camera mounted to that tree.  That camera recorded the mighty tree’s final moments in tonight’s storm.” 

 

Lightning Photos:

There were a lot of amazing photos of the storm. The new version of this web site will allow for an easier way to share all of them. But since that is still one month away, I wanted to at least show two great storm pics from my friend Tim Shahan from Silo Point over downtown Baltimore.

 

 

I could not decide which lightning image was more impressive.

Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
