More than 3,500 people in the D.C. area were without power late Sunday afternoon after a bout of severe weather whipped through the region on Saturday afternoon, knocking down trees, blowing out car windows and spawning reports of funnel clouds.
"That helped lead to showers and thunderstorms," he said. "We got several reports of funnel clouds, but no confirmed touch-downs or tornado-related damage."
Mr. Konarik said funnel clouds were spotted in Chantilly and in Anne Arundel County.
