on the helicopter, the extent of the damage and the power, it's just amazing as you fly miles and miles of trees just clipped in half like little match sticks broken in half. that was one of the most amazing things to me, the shear power of this tornado. > three people died when the tornado hit a mobile home and eight others were hurt. > in demass cuss, maryland clean up is underway. no one was hurt, but trees were upgraded. the national weather service says the damage was caused by straight line winds. we spoke with one man who was home when that storm hit. i just seen like a wall come through and as soon as i seen the wall knew it. > like a wall of clouds. >> clouds, rain. it was heavy rain. i just -- it was weird, a weird feeling in the house. i went right downstairs. > you went to the basement. >> yeah. > not a bad move. >> a smart

top hand okay, virginia you had a 20-mile path and then in evergreen where we had a fatality, 136 to 165-mile an hour winds. so tonight we're much whatting the last vestiges of this storm system still pushing across the area and even at this hour are you seeing a couple of floorries? outside our studios in northwest there's still a few flurries, they're not going to amount to anything. it's blustery breezes bringing in the colder air and a few of the snow showers from across the mountains. overnight we'll drop to 27 in gaithersburg, 29 in dulles, very cold start and as high pressure builds in tomorrow it's going to be on the cold side. it will be a quiet day. it shouldn't be as quite as blustery as today. the layers will come in handy for friday and you'll be able to ditch them by the time the weekend is over. we'll talk about the warmer weekend forecast in just a few minutes. > thank you very much.

one deserves this honor. they made assertions in front of naming committee who will pass that information onto the school board. it seems like it's going to be a really tough decision. >> i don't know why. i don't understand why there is any problem with me because my field is education. i have spent my life dealing with education both as a civilian and as a military person. so i just think it's my turn. the impact that he had in his say 16 years, 14 years of being a teenager and young adult and the impact he had on the number of people he did to me is very important. now the receipt to name this newest elementary school has been delayed due to inclement weather. we are told from here the
committee will present this information to the school board and the school board will make a decision on wednesday. he can tell you i would not to be in their position because it is going to be a difficult decision. if kyle wilson does receive this honor this will be the first elementary school in the county named after a firefighter. teisha lewis, fox5 local news. > you have to feel for anyone whos what impacted by yesterday's storm. earlier this afternoon sky fox was over demass cuss maryland where straight line winds took down a number of trees. a handful of homes were badly damaged. i guess what we're saying here in our area, sue, it certainly could have bench worse. >> it could have been. although that's pretty bad damage up there as well. a lot of trees down and the difference is the storms weren't rotating so much but had these tremendous bow equal who hes with them. the straight line winds. a lot of power outrages, too. people just
power lines down and the trees up rooted they assume a tornado. >> everything is going in the same direction. where when you look down toward evergreen and you look at the damage from the drone, something is going this way, something is going that way, it's very fanned out, so you could tell there was rotation. glad there was no worse damage and more importantly nobody was injured by the fallen trees. i'm glad that he said iran right for the basement, exactly what you had you to do to get out of the way. > you may see a few flurries tomorrow morning because we're not quite done with this system yet. it's still going to be create a few flurries. we have a little accumulation in the mountains. we had some winter weather advisories and it's still mighty cold and breezy out there. i thought teisha looked cold. it will be a cold start to our friday as ski
