Evacuation Ordered in Montgomery County
More than 2,200 people were evacuated from their homes and apartments in central Montgomery County overnight, as a dam holding back the waters of Lake Needwood near Rockville leaked and threatened to fail, officials said.According to an official I saw on the news, their disaster plan was designed in case of a lake level 19-22 feet above normal. And today it's 25 feet above.
Hey, at least there was a plan for the contingency.
Rain train is a phrase I expect we'll be hearing a lot more of in the coming years. Local News / Weather 1 comment(s)
