Photos: Georgetown Storm Damage

Most Georgetown residents had power Saturday morning.

Georgetown residents were cleaning up fallen limbs and branches and reporting downed trees Saturday morning after a powerful "derecho" storm hit the area Friday night.

A large tree fell across Dent Place between 33rd and 34th Streets, closing the street to traffic Saturday morning. Several cars were worse for the wear; a tree crushed a convertible near the intersection of 28th Street and O Street and a limb smashed the windshield of car on 1600 block of 34th Street.

To report downed trees in public space, residents should call 311 or go online at 311.dc.gov. You will need to provide specific details about the location, according to a notice from the District Department of Transportation.

To report a power outage, call Pepco at 877-PEPCO62 or you can report outages online at pepco.com or download Pepco’s smart phone app, pepco.com/mobileapp, to report and track their outages.
