Several Families in Olney Displaced After Friday’s Storm

by MCS Staff

Friday’s Thunderstorms, which also brought Tornado Warninga for several parts of the county, caused damages to a handful of homes on Tanterra Way in Olney when all was said and done on Friday afternoon, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services PIO Pete Piringer.

Piringer showed the damage that was incurred by several homes in the Olney neighborhood off of Queen Elizabeth Drive. Thankfully, there were no injuries, but several families were displaced due to the damage, which can be seen below.

In addition to the homes being damaged, Queen Elizabeth Drive was temporarily closed on Friday afternoon (specifically between Shady View Lane and Heritage Hill Dr.) by storm debris and the clean up effort that followed.

As one of the members on the crew removing the damage, I must say how frustrating the commuters and neighbors were. We get that people are interested and want to know if everyone is ok, but the equipment we use, including a crane, is very dangerous. Please next time be calm and understand we need to work to get to the next site. There is no need to get angry with us for shutting down the road, and it’s inappropriate to just walk up into the work/safety zone – especially with babies and small kids. The area is set up for your safety, as well as ours.
