INDIAN HEAD, MD - The Public Works Department South Potomac, Indian Head (PWDSPIH), Team led base recovery efforts at Naval Support Facility Indian Head, Virginia, after a severe thunderstorm moved through the Southern Maryland area, causing trees to fall and massive power outages on base July 29. The severe thunderstorm damaged six transformer banks, knocked down 15 power poles, and destroyed an additional 15 poles cross-arms, causing outages to secondary utilities, like internet and phone service. The storm also managed to knock down over one hundred adult trees, affecting all electrical distribution feeders and subsystems on the poles and facility roofs, while also making roads inaccessible.
