County continues cleanup after storms sweep through area

County public works crews continued their cleanup yesterday after the violent storm that swept through Central Maryland on Monday.

More than a dozen fallen trees were removed in Linthicum, Crofton, Arnold, Davidsonville and Annapolis, officials said.

Workers remained on emergency alert through 7 a.m. yesterday, county officials said.

The county's 60 fire recruits went yesterday to the hardest-hit areas in College Park, where two University of Maryland students were killed in a tornado and the Maryland Fire Rescue Institute's trailers were destroyed. The recruits helped with cleanup and salvage efforts, said county Fire Division Chief John M. Scholz.

"The Maryland Fire Rescue Institute has a partnership with fire departments in the state, and they provide quality training programs," Scholz said. "When they needed help, we wanted to be quick to respond."
