Severe Storms Rush Through Region, Killing One Person - washingtonpost.com I am in Washington, D.C., for work and the storms have been crazy. When this story came through it got really dark and it started pouring rain. The lightning was right over downtown and the thunder was almost right after it.
Tonight, another line of storms came through and hit just as I was headed to my hotel at 9 PM. I am glad that I had brought my umbrella. It was coming down pretty good and there was lightning all over the place. I was pretty nervous.
I am glad that I didn't know about the tornado watch. I would have been more concerned than I was.
