Washington Recovers After the Storm — PICTURES

July 2, 2012, 11:33 a.m.

Grounds crews around Wash­ing­ton are clean­ing up after Fri­day night’s severe storm that left hun­dreds of thou­sands without power in the D.C. metro area.

The grounds around the Cap­it­ol suffered minor tree dam­age, but there were no re­ports of dam­age to the build­ings on the 274-acre Cap­it­ol cam­pus.
