Storm and Baseball Opening Game
Roughly 600 customers were without power after heavy rain moved through the DMV on Thursday night.
A massive tree fell just before 9 p.m. in the 100 block of Chesapeake St. in Southwest D.C. leaving a mangled mess of power lines and several damaged cars.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported. A severe thunderstorm with intense lightning and potential for damaging winds moved through the area overnight.
The storm triggered severe thunderstorm warnings for D.C. and parts of the suburbs.
A flash flood watch is in effect until 2 a.m. for D.C.; Montgomery, Prince George’s, Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties; and the cities of Falls Church and Alexandria.
The heat index passed 100° again Thursday, and a heat advisory was in effect through 8 p.m. in Calvert, Charles, Stafford and St. Mary’s counties and the city of Fredericksburg.
Expect Friday to be mostly to partly cloudy skies with 50% chance of scattered showers and storms, highs in the mid-to-upper 90s, and a heat index in the mid-90s.
The weather rained out the long and highly anticipated Opening Day for the Washington Nationals The storm caused a rain delay at Nationals Park where the Washington Nationals were hosting the New York Yankees in the first game of the regular season. The dugouts at the stadium flooded.
The game began on schedule. 6:55, there was a quiet moment for the Black Lives Matter movement; both teams held the same strand of black cloth, then coaches and players from each team knelt into the grass.
There were two half-filled dugouts, a press box of socially distanced reporters, staff roaming the stadium and a smattering of fans watching from nearby rooftops. But that was it. The stadium was otherwise empty. There was the hum of fake crowd noise as the game began. There were faint cheers from the New York dugout when Aaron Judge ripped a one-out single. Then Giancarlo Stanton took a very quiet jog around the bases.
Yet the game wouldn’t last much longer. Scherzer worked through the middle of New York’s order while lightning lit up the sky. Thunder rolled as Urshela singled, putting runners on first and third, and the rain quickly thickened. A weather delay began at 8:52 p.m. Scherzer was finished at 99 pitches, Cole squeezed in 75, and the game was canceled after 118 minutes.
