After dragging his golf clubs and luggage off a shuttle bus in long-term parking near BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport on Wednesday afternoon, Leroy Donahue took several quick strides over to his shiny black Tesla Model S and peered through the window. The 77-year-old Arlington, Va., resident then circled his pricey high-tech electric car and, opening the hatchback, watched as water poured out. "Yep," he said, nodding to his travel buddy, Alain Labeau of Potomac. Just as he had suspected, his car - just 14 months old and still parked where he left it before heading off on a golf trip to Maine - had not been spared by the record-setting rainfall that dropped more than 6 inches on the airport and more than 10 inches on other parts of the region on Tuesday, leaving vehicles flooded in lots and on roadways all over.

Regarding your recent editorial on drones, while there may be benefits of using unmanned aerial vehicles in less populated areas, I oppose providing Baltimore City police with drones for any purpose ( "Eyes in the sky," Aug. 28). Drone manufacturers and operators hope to create thousands of jobs and earn billions of dollars with this technology. But as with any quasi-military device there is a need for civilian oversight. It's time the City Council takes up the matter. Drones don't belong in Baltimore.
