A fast-moving storm system that affected much of the eastern United States buffeted the D.C. area with rain and wind Thursday, leaving behind downed trees, thousands of power outages and unofficial reports of at least three tornadoes touching down in Maryland.
As search and rescue teams combed Moore, Okla., for survivors of Monday's deadly twister, officials struggled to describe devastation that, even for a town in the heart of "Tornado Alley," is almost unimaginable.
If the "tea party" is the story of 2010, then Marco Rubio's rise from anti-establishment challenger to senator-elect is the story of the insurgent movement itself.
Even before merging, the individual storms remained powerful, Mr. Bunting said.
Still, overall, the storms appeared to have caused less wind damage than was feared, said Bill Bunting of the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla.
