Strong winds kept emergency officials busy Friday afternoon dealing with downed trees and power lines that forced road closures, while the Coast Guard retrieved a 1,000-foot-long ship that broke free from the Dundalk Marine Terminal. The Atlantic Companion drifted or was blown across the berthing channel, which is about 600 feet wide. But it was soon brought under control by four tugboats, said Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer 3rd Class Robert Brazzell. Crews responded to calls about fallen trees throughout Baltimore, roofs blown off homes on Falls Road and the partial collapse of a building in the 1500 block of E. Federal St., Fire Department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright said.

Left-hander Joe Saunders, who started the Orioles' victory in the American League wild-card game two years ago, rejoined the club Monday in a much different role. The Orioles, who purchased Saunders' contract from Triple-A Norfolk as rosters expanded at the beginning of September, plan to use him as a multiple-inning reliever. “It feels awesome,” Saunders said. “It's been a winding road this year, for sure. It's good to be back, good to be contributing again.” The Orioles -- Saunders' third organization this year -- signed him to a minor league deal Aug. 5 with the goal of converting him to a reliever for the stretch run. Saunders was released by the Texas Rangers in July after going 0-5 with a 7.26 ERA, and he was released by the Kansas City Royals later that month after four starts with their Triple-A club.

An Italian renewable-energy company won the rights to develop offshore wind projects in nearly 80,000 acres of Atlantic waters off Maryland's coast with an $8.7 million bid Tuesday. The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management declared US Wind Inc. the provisional winner of a daylong auction for a pair of federal leases 10 nautical miles offshore, where federal officials say enough turbines could be placed to power 300,000 homes. US Wind is an offshoot of Renexia, the renewable-energy arm of Italian construction giant Toto S.p.A.

WASHINGTON -- Citing "very serious" concerns about the project's impact on Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski included language in a military spending bill that would delay the construction of a massive wind farm on the Eastern Shore. The provision, if approved, would halt the project despite efforts by Gov. Martin O'Malley this year to move it forward. O'Malley, a fellow Democrat, vetoed state legislation in May that would have imposed a 15-month moratorium on the construction of land-based wind farms.

Western Maryland is under a winter storm watch going into the weekend, with the possibility of white-out conditions and more than 6 inches of snow. That precipitation isn't expected to reach Baltimore -- but a blast of frigid wind is. A winter storm watch is in effect for Thursday night through Saturday afternoon in western Allegany County and Garrett County, including Frostburg and Deep Creek Lake. It isn't expected to dump the heavy, wet snow that paralyzed the region after Superstorm Sandy, but is raising different concerns.

The season's first tropical storm is expected to brush the mid-Atlantic coast just in time for the Fourth of July, but it is a cold front helping steer the system offshore that could deliver storms and heavy downpours before a cooler, drier holiday Friday. Hot, humid air over the region for the middle of the week is forecast to fuel storm chances through Thursday night. Oppressive levels of moisture in the air prompted Baltimore City officials to declare the summer's first "code red" heat advisory Wednesday.
