Damage Sustained to Woodlawn Manor House - *Derecho June 29th, 2012-
Sadly, the Derecho came through the Sandy Spring area on June 29, 2012 damaging the roof of the Woodlawn Manor House and destroying two large, historical trees. One tree, located behind and to the left of the Manor House, fell onto the roof, ripped a hole in the attic and damaged the double deck on the back of the Manor House. The second tree, located in front of the Manor House, fell onto the House but only damaged the gutter. (Montgomery County Department of Parks)
*A derecho ( from Spanish: "straight") is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line wind storm that is associated with a land-based, fast-moving band of severe thunderstorms
