At 342 PM EDT, severe thunderstorms were located along a line
extending from North Kensington to near Dale City, moving east at 25

These are very dangerous storms.

HAZARD...75 mph wind gusts and quarter size hail.

SOURCE...Radar indicated.

IMPACT...Expect considerable damage to trees and power lines. Your 
         life is at significant risk if outdoors. In addition to 
         some trees falling into homes, wind damage is possible to 
         roofs, sheds, open garages, and mobile homes.

This is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SITUATION. Mobile homes and high

interior room on the lowest floor of a building. These storms have 
the potential to cause serious injury and significant property

Continuous cloud to ground lightning is occurring with these storms.
Move indoors immediately. Lightning is one of nature's leading

be struck by lightning.

Rolling thunder in the distance

I'm a rolling thunder, a pouring rain
I'm comin' on like a hurricane
My lightning's flashing across the sky
You're only young but you're gonna die.

it’s been thundering for 2 hours and yet with no storm overhead, the thunder just shook the house. .55” of steady moderate rain.

It could evolve that way. I'm ok if it misses. Scored decently last night, and tomorrow looks promising.
